Access list 2013/2014

UEFA European Cup Football
by Bert Kassies

This page shows the access list for the 2013/2014 season of the Champions League and the Europa League. In this list the sequence of the countries is determined by the UEFA Country Ranking 2012. See UEFA European Cup Football for more information.

The Champions League cup-holder spot will not be used because Bayern München already qualified for the group stage of the Champions League. This implies that the champion of the 13th country on the ranking list (Denmark) has direct access to the group stage, the champion of the 16th country on the ranking list (Cyprus) has direct access to the 3rd qualifying round, and the champions of the 48th and 49th countries on the ranking list (Northern Ireland and Luxumburg) have direct access to the 2nd qualifying round of the Champions League.

The Europa League cup-holder spot will not be used because Chelsea already qualified for Champions League. This implies that the cup winner of the 7th country on the ranking list (Russia) has direct access to the group stage, the cup winner of the 16th country on the ranking list (Cyprus) has direct access to the 4th qualifying round, the cup winner of the 19th country on the ranking list (Czech Republic) has direct access to the 3rd qualifying round, and the cup winners of the 33th and 34th countries on the ranking list (Ireland and Slovenia) have direct access to the 2nd qualifying round of the Europa League.

At May 24 UEFA granted official UEFA membership to Gibraltar, which will include Champions League and Europa League participation from 2014/15 onwards. See UEFA Welcome Gibraltar To Europe’s Football Family As 54th Member.
