Qualification 2016/2017

UEFA European Cup Football
by Bert Kassies

Last update:

This page shows a list of teams qualified for the 2016/2017 season of the Champions League and the Europa League. In this list the country coefficients are from the UEFA Country Ranking 2015 and the team coefficients from the UEFA Team Ranking 2016. The team coefficients are used for seeding of draws. See UEFA European Cup Football for more information.

Many qualification details may be found in the official regulations: CL Regulations 2016/17 and the EL Regulations 2016/17. A nice overview of the 2016/17 season of European football is given by wikipedia 2016-17 CL and wikipedia 2016-17 EL.

The number of teams of each country is determined by the position in the UEFA Country Ranking 2015. Fair Play teams no longer qualify 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.

On May 18 the UEFA Executive Committee decided that the domestic champion and the domestic cup winner of Kosovo will be admitted to the first qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League. For this season the clubs of Kosovo will have to meet the special permission licensing criteria under article 15 of the UEFA Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play regulations. However, the Kosovar clubs did not get a license. This implies that the champion of the 46th country on the ranking list (Latvia) has direct access to the 2nd qualifying round of the Champions League, and the cup winner of the 28th country on the ranking list (Slovenia) has direct access to the 2nd qualifying round of the Europa League.
