The Youth Cup is a football competition organized by UICA for under-19 teams of the clubs which qualify for the group stage of the Champions’ Cup. It is the newest UICA club competition, founded in UICA season 49.

Format

The draw for the Champions’ Cup group stage determines the groups for the Youth Cup, and the youth teams play exactly the same group schedule as their senior counterparts. The top two teams in each group advance to a sixteen-team knockout stage, which is played as single matches rather than home-and-away ties. If a match is tied, no extra time is played; kicks from the penalty mark are used instead. In the first knockout round, matches are hosted by the teams which finished first in their groups, while in the quarterfinals, the host teams are determined by a random draw. The semifinals and final are played at a neutral site, which is the same site that is chosen to host the Series B Champions’ Cup final.
