Qualify For the EUROPA LEAGUE This Season
What is the UEFA Europa League you ask? The UEFA Europa League is an amateur competition consisting of 48 top European club sides who play across six matches for the title to be considered legitimate winners and automatically qualify for the next season’s UEFA Champions League. Some consider it to be the most difficult cup competition to watch live and this is why many people are tuning into the competition to see which teams will earn a place in next year’s competition. It also draws some of the finest footballing talents in Europe as well as some non-competitive players who wish to try their luck at football just like the big boys. It may not quite be as good as the EPL but it is definitely something.
So how do you qualify for this competition? The qualification process is pretty simple, all you need is to get a ticket for the EUROPA LEAGUE tournament and follow the instructions given to you. All teams play each other in a single game so you have to make sure that your chosen team qualifies by winning their respective group stage. Once in the group stages only three teams will continue to the knockout phase, if any other team wins then they will be eliminated from the competition.
After the group stage the remaining eight teams are ranked depending on their performance. The top four clubs are awarded the title holders and the remaining five will earn a place in the playoffs. The playoffs consist of a play-off between the runners of each respective conference and a final, which takes place between the runners finishing in fourth and fifth place. In the event that there is a tie between the runners finishing fourth and fifth place then the playoff results will be decided by a draw.
As for qualification for this competition, the best way to go about it would be to begin by qualifying for the third-tier competition, which is known as the UEFA Cup. You must join a team that qualifies for this cup before you can participate in the EUROPA LEAGUE. The second option is to join any of the available seeded teams. Remember that your first season in Europe is not a guarantee that you will eventually qualify for the championship.
There have been some significant changes to the way qualifications work in the EUROPA LEAGUE since last year. For example, the playoff rankings are based on the results of the first two groups, meaning that teams that earn more points during the group stage are given higher seed chances. This has made it easier for up and coming sides to catch fans’ eyes by joining the competition early. Also, the playoff scoring format is different this year following recent tournaments such as the FIFA World Cup and the European Championships. Each team has only three shots in total during a match, unlike the usual four that were used in previous tournaments. This change however has not changed the fact that qualification for the group stage is still dependent on winning matches so far.
If you are a fan looking to experience a tough competition, the EUROPA LEAGUE is definitely for you. You could even earn a ticket to watch the EUROPA LEAGUE final, which will be played at the St. George’s Park in London. This is usually done by the promotion teams, but if you are fortunate enough, you might be lucky enough to get a ticket as well. The competition is tough, but the European trophy is out there if you play your hearts out and win your games.
