Qualification 2017/2018

UEFA European Cup Football
by Bert Kassies

Last update:

This page shows the preliminary qualification list for the 2017/18 season. It is assumed that all qualified clubs will get a license for European football, unless they lose their final appeal with the national Appeals Body. If you have any information about data at this page being incorrect, incomplete, or out-of-date, please send a message to bert.kassies@xs4all.nl.

This page shows a list of teams qualified for the 2017/2018 season of the Champions League and the Europa League. In this list the country coefficients are from the UEFA Country Ranking 2016 and the team coefficients from the UEFA Team Ranking 2017. 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 2017/18 and the EL Regulations 2017/18. A nice overview of the 2017/18 season of European football is given by wikipedia 2017-18 CL and wikipedia 2017-18 EL.

The number of teams of each country is determined by the position in the UEFA Country Ranking 2016. 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.

Since the Champions League title holder (Real Madrid or Juventus) already qualified for the group stage of the Champions League, the Europa League title holder (Manchester United) gains access to the group stage of the Champions League, and leave an open spot in the Europa League group stage. This open spot will be taken by the cup winner of the 13th country on the ranking list (Czech Republic). The cup winner of the 18th country on the ranking list (Poland) has direct access to the 3rd qualifying round, and the cup winners of the 25th and 26th countries on the ranking list (Scotland and Azerbaijan) have direct access to the 2nd qualifying round of the Europa League.
