The group stage of the 2020 CEV Champions League (or 4th Round if you prefer) will consist of five pools with four teams each, just like in several previous editions. On today’s draw, 18 teams were put in pools, while the room was made for the remaining two that will secure their places after completing the previous three rounds.
