UEFA has officially abolished the away goal rule from UEFA club competitions starting from  2021-22 season.

The away goals rule has been part of UEFA competitions since it was introduced in 1965; UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said the decision to abolish away goals was not unanimous, but there was a preference for the rule to no longer be implemented.

The away goals rule will be scrapped from all UEFA club competitions from the start of the 2021-22 season, the governing body has confirmed.

According to the President:

The away goals rule has been an intrinsic part of UEFA competitions since it was introduced in 1965,” Ceferin said.

However, the question of its abolition has been debated at various UEFA meetings over the last few years. Although there was no unanimity of views, many coaches, fans and other football stakeholders have questioned its fairness and have expressed a preference for the rule to be abolished.
