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) 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.
