Due to the cancellation of most domestic women's leagues, there was a clear break between the 2019/2020 and 2020/21 seasons. As most clubs were unable to extend existing contracts due to the additional financial burden, the UEFA Executive Committee decided to allow the registration of six new players for the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final.
All six players could have been fielded for another club in a previous round, but only a maximum of three of these were permitted to have played for one of the other quarter-finalists.
Such additional registrations had to be completed by midnight CET on 18 August 2020.
