Round 1 is one of two rounds before the 16-team group stage, which begins in November. It is split into two paths: the champions path and the league path. In both paths, round 1 consists of two stages, each of one-off knockout matches played in single-venue mini-tournaments: semi-finals (6 September) and finals/third-place play-offs (9 September). The winners of each final (11 in champions path, four in league path) will progress to round 2.

The hosts of the knockout mini-tournaments will be confirmed from among the clubs in each group.
