For the 2019-2020 season, only players born on or after January 1, 2001 are eligible to participate in the UEFA Youth League, but up to five players born on or after 1 January 2000 may be included on the list provided certain conditions are fulfilled.

The Swiss City Nyon will host the remainder of the UEFA Youth League.
