The 2010-11 UEFA Women's Champions League was the tenth edition of the European women's championship for football clubs. The final was held in London, England on 26 May 2011 at Craven Cottage.

French side Olympique Lyon won the competition after finishing runner-up the previous year. Lyon became the first French team to win the competition.[2]

Team allocation and distribution

On 14 June 2010 UEFA announced the entry list.[3] A total of 51 teams from 43 UEFA associations will participate. This is two less than in 2009-10, as the title holder Turbine Potsdam also qualified through its domestic league, and the winners of the Maltese league were not entered. Countries are allocated places according to their 2009 UEFA league coefficient for women,[4] taking into account performances in women's club competitions between 2004-05 and 2008-09.

Associations 1-8 have two club qualify, the remaining associations have one team. Unlike the men's Champions League, not every association enters a team, and so the exact number of clubs in each round is only known shortly before the draw.

Seeding and draw

The draw was held on 23 June 2010. 28 teams enter in the qualifying round, and were divided into seven groups of four teams, with one team from each seeding pot:

The seven hosts were confirmed by UEFA before the draw, and two hosts could not be placed in the same group. Brøndby, Gintra Universitetas, Krka, Osijek and Apollon Limassol also hosted tournaments last year. The other two hosts from last year (Linköping and Tikvesanka) did not enter the qualifying round this year.

Each team plays the other teams in the group once. The matches were played between 5 and 10 August 2010. Teams in italic hosted a mini-league.

Tie-breaker criteria

As usual in UEFA competitions, three points are awarded for a win, and one point for a draw. If teams are equal on points after all matches have been played, the following criteria applies:

  1. Higher number of points obtained in the matches among the teams in question.
  2. Superior goal difference resulting from the matches among the teams in question.
  3. Higher number of goals scored in the matches among the teams in question.
  4. Superior goal difference in all group matches
  5. Higher number of goals scored in all group matches
  6. Higher number of club coefficient points
  7. Drawing of lots

Criteria 1-3 are reapplied until the tie cannot be resolved; only then is criteria 4 used.
