Borussia Dortmund confirm squad for the UEFA Champions League group stage

Borussia Dortmund have submitted their squad for the group stage of the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League. A total of 30 players have been nominated. 

With the transfer market now closed, the start of the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League is almost upon us. Borussia Dortmund begin their Champions League campaign on September 15. And their official squad list for the group stage has now been finalised. The Black and Yellows have registered 30 players in their squad, with 25 players on List A and 5 players on List B.

UEFA rules state that players born on or after 1 January, 2000 who have been eligible to play for a club for at least two consecutive years can be registered on List B. Players aged 16 are also eligible to be added to this list if they have been with a club for the previous two years without interruption. Clubs can register an unlimited number of players on List B over the course of the group stage.

Borussia Dortmund have named five players on List B, including Gio Reyna, Youssoufa Moukoko, Göktan Gürpüz, Nnamdi Collins and Tobias Raschl.

List A can only have a maximum of 25 players, and at least eight of those players must be locally trained.

Borussia Dortmund begin their UEFA Champions League campaign with a trip to Turkey to take on Besiktas JK on September 15. Marco Rose’s side will also go up against AFC Ajax and Sporting CP in Group C.
