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

While there’s some prize money and silverware on the line, the real prize is that the winner automatically qualifies for the next edition of the UEFA Champions League. English club Chelsea won last year’s tournament.

Europa League tournament format

The Europa League follows an almost identical format to the Champions League, especially as we get to the group stages. Overall there are 128 teams that will take part in the tournament, though many are eliminated during the preliminary and qualifying rounds.

Action and interest starts to pick up at the group stage which is comprised of 48 clubs. This year 26 associations are represented in the group stage. 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 too.

The winners and runners-up of each group advance to the knockout stage where things get spicy. This is the point where 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.

Contenders

This tournament it’ll likely be hard to find a winner outside of the heavyweights. The more fancied clubs include Manchester United, Internazionale, Sevilla and AS Roma.
