*The UEFA Europa League winners will start in the UEFA Champions League play-offs unless the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League winners finish their domestic campaign in a league position which means they would have qualified for the group stage via that method.

If that does happen, a group stage vacancy is created which the UEFA Europa League winners would fill.

If that did not happen, the UEFA Europa League winners would start in the league route play-off (if the UEFA Champions League winners came from the first 13 associations in the UEFA rankings; if the winners came from any of the associations ranked 14-54, they would enter in the champions route). 

**Liechtenstein do not have a league system and therefore do not supply UEFA Champions League representative(s).
