UEFA Europa Conference League

The UEFA Europa Conference League is the third club competition in Europe behind the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League. Clubs qualify based on their performance in their national leagues and cup competitions and will primarily be contested by teams from lower-ranked UEFA member associations.

The competition will be introduced for the 2021-2022 season.


Format of the UEFA Europa Conference League

There are three Qualifying Round’s and a Play-off round between June and August before 32 teams compete in the Group Stage of the competition, lasting from September to December.

A preliminary knockout round will take place in February between the teams ranked second in their groups and the third-ranked teams of the UEFA Europa League groups.

The 8 group winners and 8 winners from the preliminary knockout round then enter the knockout phase, which runs from March to May and culminates in the Final in late May. The winners of the competition are awarded a position in the Europa League the following season, unless they qualify for the Champions League.
