FULL SEASON CALENDAR

A country's representation in the UEFA Europa League is determined by its UEFA coefficient ranking as of the start of the previous season, which is calculated over a five-year basis. In the new format, 16 teams automatically enter this season's competition in the group stage, with a further 142 sides starting their campaigns in the qualifying rounds, and 33 more joining from various phases of the UEFA Champions League including eight third-place group finishers entering the UEFA Europa League round of 32. This is the last season that three teams will enter through the Respect Fair Play rankings.

The list below is provisional and is subject to pending legal proceedings and final confirmation from UEFA.
