Europa Conference League 2021/22: Fixtures, Draw, Results, Odds, Scores And Everything You Need To Know

Europa Conference League

The UEFA Europa Conference League (UECL) is officially underway shortly as teams will be looking to win the competition in its inaugural season.

The competition was confirmed back in December 2018 and was initially going to be called “Europa League 2”, but was soon revealed that it would be operating under an entirely new banner.

No teams were able to qualify directly to the group stage and had to advance via the Play-offs to compete, and will essentially be the third and final level of European football, below the Europa League and Champions League.

In total, 184 sides from across Europe will take part in this seismic event, with one team from each of UEFA’s 55 associations.

The winners of the Carabao Cup will automatically qualify for the competition, but with Manchester City having already qualified for the Champions League, Leicester City winning the FA Cup and finishing in the Europa League places, the spot went to the next highest finisher.

After finishing sixth in the Premier League table during the 2020/21 campaign, Tottenham Hotspur became the first side in the highest level of English football to take part in the new tournament.

The winner of the UECL will qualify automatically for the 2022/23 Europa League.
