Qualification 2005/2006

UEFA European Cup Football
by Bert Kassies

This page shows a list of teams qualified for the 2005/2006 season of the Champions League and the UEFA Cup. In the list below the country coefficients are from the UEFA Country Ranking 2004 and the team coefficients from the UEFA Team Ranking 2005. 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 2004, extended with 3 Intertoto + 3 Fair Play teams for the UEFA Cup. For seeding of the teams see: Seeding in the Champions League 2005/2006, and Seeding in the UEFA Cup 2005/2006.

The Champions League cup-holder spot will not be used in the group stages because Liverpool did not qualify for the Champions League based on league position. The English FA said it will enter the top four teams of the Premiership. At June 10 UEFA decided that the UEFA Champions League holders Liverpool will compete in next season's UEFA Champions League first qualifying round. This implies that the champion of the 10th country on the ranking list (Turkey) will gain direct access to the 1st round, and the champion of the 16th country on the ranking list (Poland) will gain direct access to the 3rd qualifying round, and the champion of the 26th country on the ranking list (Romania) will gain direct access to the 2nd qualifying round.

The defending UEFA Cup cup-holder CSKA Moscow already qualified for the 2nd qualifying round, which means that the 1st UC entrant of the 25th and 26th countries on the ranking list (Hungary and Romania) will gain direct access to the 2nd qualifying round of the UEFA Cup.

Because Liverpool enters the 1st qualifying round of the Champions League, the 1st UC entrant of 11th and 12th countries on the ranking list (Scotland and Belgium) will gain direct access to the 1st round of the UEFA Cup.

In Kazakhstan only Kairat Almaty obtained a UEFA license for the 2005/2006 season. The other teams from Kazakhstan have been excluded for UEFA Cup competion. Therefore the 1st UC entrant of the 27th and 28th countries on the ranking list (Slovakia and Slovenia) will gain direct access to the 2nd qualifying round of the UEFA Cup.
