The Europa League began in 1971 as the UEFA Cup and was the third tier of competition below the Champions League (Then the European Cup) and the Cup Winners Cup. In 1999 the UEFA Cup and Cup Winners Cup were merged, and since the 2010/11 season, the competition has been called the UEFA Europa League.
The Europa League is the second tier of competition, below the Champions League and above the Europa Conference League.
Currently, the league consists of a qualifying round, play-off round, group stage, preliminary knockout round and a knockout phase. From the 2024/25 season, this will become 3 qualifying rounds, a play-off round and a group stage.
Teams qualify for the Europa League by domestic routes and enter at different stages of the competition depending on their qualifying path. Teams knocked out of the Champions League join the Europa League from the third qualifying round onwards.
Since 2015 the winners of the Europa League have qualified for the Champions League the following season.

As with most major tournaments, it is popular to bet on the tournament's outright winner as well as the winners of individual games. It is also popular to place bets on the top goalscorer.
Bets on which teams will make the final and the nationality of the final winner are also possible.
In the UK all Europa League matches can be watched on TNT Sports (formerly BT Sport) in a deal that is set to run until 2027.
