Qualification 2008/2009

UEFA European Cup Football
by Bert Kassies

This page shows a list of teams qualified for the 2008/2009 season of the Champions League and the UEFA Cup. In the list below the country coefficients are from the UEFA Country Ranking 2007 and the team coefficients from the UEFA Team Ranking 2008. 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 2007, extended with 11 Intertoto + 3 Fair Play teams for the UEFA Cup.

The Champions League cup-holder spot will not be used because Manchester United already qualified for the group stage of the Champions League. This implies that the champions of the 23th and 24th countries on the ranking list (Wisla Krakˇw, Poland and MTK Budapest, Hungary) gain direct access to the 2nd qualifying round, the CL entrant of the 16th country on the ranking list (Levski Sofia, Bulgaria) gains direct access to the 3rd qualifying round, and the champion of the 10th country on the ranking list (Celtic, Scotland) gains direct access to the group stage.

The UEFA Cup cup-holder spot will not be used because Zenit St. Petersburg qualified for the Champions league. This implies that the cup winner of the 14th country on the country ranking list (Kayserispor, Turkey) will gain direct access to the 1st round round, and that the 1st UEFA Cup entrants of the 19th and 20th countries on the ranking list (Maccabi Netanya, Israel and Red Star Belgrade, Serbia) have direct access to the 2nd qualifying round of the UEFA Cup.
