From now on, the PCL will have a new way of determining the knock-out pairs.

In all previous tournaments, the 1/8-final opponents were determined according to their positions in the groups. For example, Winner-Group1 would meet Runner-up-Group5, Winner-Group3 vs Runner-up-Group7, etc.

Starting from the current PCL XXXV, all group winners will be ranked from #1 to #8 according to the points and goals they have earned in the groups, and all group runners-up will be ranked separately from #1 to #8 as well. Thus, the new 1/8-final opponents will be paired this way:


Group Winner #1 vs Group Runner-up #8
Group Winner #8 vs Group Runner-up #1


Group Winner #4 vs Group Runner-up #5
Group Winner #5 vs Group Runner-up #4



Group Winner #2 vs Group Runner-up #7
Group Winner #7 vs Group Runner-up #2


Group Winner #3 vs Group Runner-up #6
Group Winner #6 vs Group Runner-up #3



Then the 1/4-final and 1/2-final pairs will follow the above scheme, group winners having the home advantage until the final.
