All about the Europa League on Oddspedia
The UEFA Europa League as we know it today was founded in September 1971, the result of a decision by European football's top body to make room for those clubs not taking part in the UEFA Champions League or the now-defunct UEFA Cup Winners Cup. 11 different nations have seen their teams lift the UEFA Europa League, which in 2010 took its current name by abandoning the UEFA Cup and also integrating the Intertoto Cup. Sevilla FC, with five titles, is the most successful club in the competition, followed by Juventus, Inter Milan, Liverpool and Atletico Madrid, all with three titles.
The Europa League champion, once he lifts his trophy, has a place to play the European Super Cup against the winner of the Champions League of the same season. Also, since 2014, the Europa League champion plays the following year's Champions League.
After the Champions League, the Europa League is one of the most popular sporting events in the world, mainly because there are seasons when world footballs classics have the chance to win a continental title after a bad experience in the Champions League or in their domestic league. As with the Champions League, the Europa League is home to the second, third, and fourth place finishers in some domestic leagues with fewer places per coefficient for the Champions League.
In its early days, the Europa League, once known as the UEFA Cup, was played in a very different way to the current Europa League format. In the beginning, and as a good fan of the Fair Cup, the UEFA Cup was played through a system of direct elimination between the clubs that disputed it, until a final where the champion was decided. However, unlike the Champions League, all matches were played in both legs, including the final, until 1998.
After the disappearance of the Cup Winners Cup in 2000, the UEFA Cup increased the number of teams considerably, which led in 2005 to a group stage with 40 teams, which increased to the current 48 already in the Europa League model.
Since then, 213 teams have played in the Europa League since the first of the four previous rounds that begin in June and end in May with the champion. A champion who gets a place to play the European Super Cup and the next edition of the Champions League.
