Qualification 2004/2005

UEFA European Cup Football
by Bert Kassies

This page shows a list of teams qualified for the 2004/2005 season of the Champions League and the UEFA Cup. In the list below the country coefficients are from the UEFA Country Ranking 2003 and the team coefficients from the UEFA Team Ranking 2004. The team coefficients are used for seeding of draws. See UEFA European Cup Football for more information.

The number of teams of each country is determined by the position in the UEFA Country Ranking 2003, extended with 3 Intertoto + 3 Fair Play teams for the UEFA Cup.

The Champions League cup-holder spot is not used because Porto qualified for the Champions League. This implies that the champion of the 10th country on the ranking list (Fenerbahše, Turkey) will gain direct access to the 1st round, and the champion of the 16th country on the ranking list (Grazer AK, Austria) will gain direct access to the 3rd qualifying round, and the champions of the 26th and 27th country on the ranking list (Dinamo Bucuresti, Romania and Ferencvaros, Hungary) will gain direct access to the 2nd qualifying round.

The UEFA Cup cup-holder spot is not used because Valencia qualified for the Champions League. This implies that the 1st UC entrant of of the 11th country on the ranking list (Standard LiŔge, Belgium) will gain direct access to the 1st round, and the 1st UC entrant of the 25th and 26th country on the ranking list (FC Petrzalka, Slovakia and Steaua Bucuresti, Romania) will gain direct access to the 2nd qualifying round of the UEFA Cup.

A licence is obligatory for clubs qualifying for UEFA club competitions in the 2004/05 season. A club which has qualified on the basis of sporting criteria but is not allowed to enter the competition because it has not obtained a licence, will be replaced by a club nominated by the national association on the basis of the rankings in the top domestic league championship (or by the runners-up of the domestic cup competition if the cup winners need to be replaced).

Teams from Kazakhstan have not received a license from their association for the participation in the 2004/05 UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Cup. Therefore, the teams from Kazakhstan have been excluded for the 2004/05 UEFA Club Competitions. For the Champions League this implies that the champion of the 28th country on the ranking list (APOEL Nicosia, Cyprus) will gain direct access to the 2nd qualifying round. In the UEFA Cup the 1st UC entrant of the 27th and 28th country on the ranking list (┌jpest TE, Hungary and AEK Larnaca, Cyprus) will gain direct access to the 2nd qualifying round of the UEFA Cup.
