Qualification 2011/2012

UEFA European Cup Football
by Bert Kassies

This page shows a list of teams qualified for the 2011/2012 season of the Champions League and the Europa League. In this list the country coefficients are from the UEFA Country Ranking 2010 and the team coefficients from the UEFA Team Ranking 2011. 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 2010, extended with 3 Fair Play teams for the Europa League. All participating teams must have obtained a licence for European football issued by the corresponding national association in accordance with the UEFA Club Licensing Regulations.

The Champions League cup-holder spot will not be used because Barcelona already qualified for the group stage of the Champions League. This implies that the champion of the 13th country on the ranking list (FC Basel, Switzerland) has direct access to the group stage, the champion of the 16th country on the ranking list (Glasgow Rangers, Scotland) has direct access to the 3rd qualifying round, and the champions of the 48th and 49th countries on the ranking list (HB Torshavn, Faroe Islands and Linfield Belfast, Northern Ireland) have direct access to the 2nd qualifying round of the Champions League.

The Europa League cup-holder spot will not be used because Porto already qualified for the Champions League. This implies that the 4th qualifying round has to be extended with an extra match. Therefore the cup winners (or 1st league entrants) of the 16th and 17th countries on the ranking list (Celtic, Scotland and CSKA Sofia, Bulgaria) have direct access to the 4th qualifying round, the cup winners of the 28th and 29th countries on the ranking list (FC Gomel, Belarus and Sligo Rovers, Ireland) have direct access to the 3rd qualifying round, and the 2nd Europa League team of the 33th and 34th countries on the ranking list (Metalurgs Liepaja, Latvia and Sheriff Tiraspol, Moldova) and the cup winners of Malta (Floriana) and San Marino (Juvenes Dogana) have direct access to the 2nd qualifying round of the Europa League.
