History of the Europa League
In 1971, UEFA announced the introduction of the UEFA Cup. This would later be revamped into the Europa League. Although the Europa League does not have the prestige and history of the Champions League, it has still been going for a number of years and some big clubs have played in, and won the competition.
In 2009, UEFA decided to change the format of the UEFA Cup from a pure knockout competition to one based on group stages followed by knockout rounds. They decided to change the name of the competition to the Europa League and that it would be similar to the Champions League.
The teams would be playing in groups for the first stage and the top 2 teams from each group progressing to the knockout stages. It was also decided that the winners of the Europa League each year would also qualify for the Champions league the following season.
UEFA decided that the Europa League would also replace the European Cup Winners Cup competition. This was a competition for teams that had won the domestic cup in their leagues such as the English FA Cup.
For a team to qualify for the Europa League they have to finish in various positions in their home league or be the winners of their domestic cup. The top leagues like the English Premier League provide a Europa league place to the team that finishes in 5th place. There are two domestic cup competitions in England which are the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup. Winners of these cups automatically qualify for the Europa League.
There are three qualifying rounds for the Europa League as well as a play off round. Today, 48 teams enter the group stages of the Europa League and the top 2 teams from each group go to the knockout stage. They are joined by the eight teams that finish third in the Champions League groups. These teams play in the round of 32 with winners progressing to the next knockout stage.
