The UEFA Europa League (UEL) is a European soccer competition contested by teams from all different associations across the continent. It is the second-tier tournament of European soccer behind the UEFA Champions League. Previously known as the UEFA Cup, it 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 Sevilla continued its dominance of the competition last year, winning its sixth Europa League since 2006.
The UEFA Europa League is live and exclusive to DAZN in Canada. You can start checking it all out using this 30-day free trial.
DAZN is setting the standard in Canada when it comes to sports streaming. It’s a growing service that is presently available in nine countries worldwide and the month-long free trial is the perfect, hassle-free way for users to give it a road test. After that, you can choose to continue for $20 per month or take a discounted rate for a yearly pass of $150.
If you decide DAZN isn’t for you, cancel at least 24 hours before your 30 days are up. DAZN has a huge amount of sport to offer, including NFL, English Premier League, MLB, Europa League and more. You can see the full list of sports available and an extensive DAZN guide here.
DAZN has an app available to download on iOS and Android devices plus Amazon’s Fire tablet. You can also watch via laptop or PC. Other viewing options include Chromecast, Smart TVs (LG, Sony and Samsung) or PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
Originally scheduled to get underway in June last year, the qualifying matches eventually commenced in August 2020 due to the pandemic. The group stage was held from October through December. The knockout rounds were then scheduled for February 2021 with home and away ties through to the final in May.
The final will take place on 26 May EDT at Stadion Miejski in Gdańsk, Poland.
To catch matches of non-English teams from the Europa League in their domestic competitions, such as Spain’s La Liga or Ligue 1 in France, you need to get access to beIN SPORTS.
This leaves you with one of two options in Canada. Subscribing to beIN SPORTS directly, for $14.95/month or $164.95 for an annual pass. You can also get three beIN channels via fuboTV along with MLB Network, Fight Network, Paramount Network and more for $15.99/month.
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.
This tournament it will likely be hard to find a winner outside of the heavyweights. There are four English clubs remaining, Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Leicester City, along with AC Milan, Rangers, Napoli and Roma.
