Fifty six years old rule that goes into history

On the last Thursday of June the European football organization has made one change concerning its all club tournaments (for men, women and youth categories) from next season (2021-22).
Beginning with the first qualifying round and onwards, clubs can no longer depend on the away goals norm which so far was counted as double. If the results (over two matches) are equal in regular time additional 30 minutes are going to be played and penalty shootouts (if necessary).
This rule was first introduced at 1965-66 season.
