How to watch 2021/22 Europa League live online: Canada TV guide

Once again there are some European heavyweights contesting this season's Europa League. Here's how to catch all of the action.

The UEFA Europa League (UEL) is a European football competition contested by teams from all different associations across the continent. It is the second-tier tournament of European football behind the UEFA Champions League. Previously known as the UEFA Cup, it was renamed the UEFA Europa League in 2009.

While there’s prize money and silverware on the line, the biggest reward is that the winner automatically qualifies for the next edition of the UEFA Champions League. Spanish side Villarreal took out the competition for the first time last year, beating Manchester United on penalties in the final.

Europa League tournament format

The Europa League is an almost identical format to the Champions League, especially as we get to the group stages. Overall there are 128 teams that take part in the tournament.

Action and interest starts to pick up at the group stage which is comprised of 48 clubs. Teams are split into 12 groups of 4 and restrictions ensure clubs from the same country are separated. Again, like the Champions League a home-and-away round robin format is used.

The winners and runners-up of each group advance to the knockout stage where things get spicy. At this point the eight teams who finished third in their group from the Champions League are introduced. Atletico Madrid are the last club to win the title after being eliminated from the Champions League.

It’s also here where the format gets messy. To explain simply, the 12 group winners and 12 runners-up from the Europa League group stage are paired with the 8 third-placed teams from the Champions League groups to make the round of 32. A random draw is then held and teams play over two legs on a home-and-away basis, until the final which is one match at a neutral venue.
