This page shows a list of teams qualified for the 2007/2008
season of the Champions League and the UEFA Cup.
In the list below the country coefficients are from the
UEFA Country Ranking 2006
and the team coefficients from the
UEFA Team Ranking 2007.
The team coefficients are used for seeding of draws.
The number of teams of each country is determined by the
position in the UEFA Country Ranking 2006, extended with 11 Intertoto
+ 3 Fair Play teams for the UEFA Cup.
The UEFA Congress at January 26, decided that clubs from Montenegro,
UEFA's newest member association, and Andorra and San Marino will play
in the 1st qualifying round of the Champions League. Therefore the
number of teams in the 1st qualifying round is increased by 6 teams.
This implies that the champion of the 25th country on the ranking list
(Dinamo Zagreb, Croatia) will have to play in the 1st qualifying round.
Since the title holder AC Milan already qualified for the 3rd
qualifying round of the Champions League, the champions of the 23th and
24th countries on the ranking list (FC København, Denmark and DVSC
Debrecen, Hungary) gain direct access to the 2nd qualifying round, and
the champion of the 16th country on the ranking list (FC Zürich,
Switzerland) has direct access to the 3rd qualifying round.
In the UEFA Cup 1st qualifying round the places of the champions of
Andorra and San Marino (which take part in the Champions League) will be
taken by the cup-winners of those countries. In order to adapt the
schedule to the two new clubs from Montenegro, UEFA's newest member
association, the 3rd UEFA Cup team of the 16th and 17th countries on the
ranking list (Young Boys, Switzerland and Litex Lovech, Bulgaria) will
have to play in the 1st qualifying round.
The UEFA Cup cup-holder spot will not be used because Sevilla qualified for the
Champions league. This implies that the 1st UEFA Cup entrant of the 14th country
on the country ranking list (Mladá Boleslav, Czech Republic) will gain direct
access to the 1st round round, and that the cup winners of the 19th and 20th
countries on the ranking list (Fredrikstad FK, Norway, and Austria Wien,
Austria) will gain direct access to the 2nd qualifying round of the UEFA Cup.
Scotland and Norway did not apply for the Intertoto Cup. Therefore
Denmark and Hungary may start in round 2, and Romania can sent an extra
team to the 1st round. Also Andorra was invited to take part, and
starts in round 1.
