The UEFA Europa League is a competitive international soccer league tournament organised by the Union of European Football Associations. It is the most attended and followed league in Europe. It is divided into three different divisions, the first of which is the qualification phase. After this stage the teams are ranked based on their performance in the tournament and their standing is determined. This is the first step towards the possibility of reaching the round of sixteen.
The third and final step is the playoffs, which are played in the respective round of 16. The four groups of teams who will be playing in the playoffs are the away group, the home group, the third placed team and the Champions League group stages runners. The fourth and fifth placed teams in the Champions League group stages are also guaranteed a place in the playoffs. The playoffs consist of the quarter finals and the semi-finals.
The future configuration of the playoffs is currently unknown. specimium There is a proposal by the European soccer association, the European soccer clubs association and the European soccer officials to create a format that will replace the current qualifying system. However, no concrete proposals have been presented yet by these associations. A meeting is expected in summer of this year to decide the future playoff schedule.
The 2021/11 season was very successful with the growth of the competition and the popularity rising among the fans. After six years of the creation of this cup, only four teams from Europe qualified for the playoffs. This was an unprecedented situation as it meant that there were some teams that were not very strong in the league. In the previous years, there was no such provision for strengthening teams and making them potential cup contenders. The evolution of the playoffs has proved that there should be a better way of deciding the champions of the league. A meeting between the relevant parties may now be rearranged and there should be a more controlled way of choosing the champions of the league.
The third-tier competition is very competitive and has a huge following amongst the fans. Fans are excited about the possibility of seeing their favorite players in the EUROTO Pokota or the UEFA EUROTO CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES. The previous ranking system was a great factor in determining the ranking of the teams but the current qualification system does not allow any kind of ranking system. The ranking of the teams is decided by the performance of the players and club management during the course of the season. Currently, nobody can say that any team is favourites for the title and no one can claim that they are favourites to win the tournament.
The rankings of the teams are decided by a complex formula, which takes into account all the factors of the competition including the results of the matches. The recent trend is that if a certain country manages to qualify for the tournament, their qualification is automatically considered as a boost for their team and they get a boost in their morale. The association is trying to change this trend and wants to give the opportunity to the visitors to win some points for themselves. The ranking system for the EUROTO Pokota is an attempt by the FIFA Administration to correct the imbalance between the nations ranked fourth and fifth.
