Europa League – History and tournament structure


The Europa League, or the UEFA Cup as it was called then, had its premiere back in 1971. It’s held every year and runs from august to may. The tournament starts with a qualification phase where teams from all over Europe that’ve been qualifying through their domestic leagues will get a chance to book their spot in the upcoming season’s competition. When the qualification games are played 48 teams will progress to the highly interesting group stage where 12 groups of four teams are drawn. The two best teams from each group will later advance to the Playoff stages where eight third-placed teams from the UEFA Champions League group stage also will join. The tournament then continues in a knock-out format leading up to the big final, which is usually held in the end of May one week before the Champions League final. Every knock-out stage except the final is played in a best-of-two-games series, where the teams face each other one time at home and one time away.

Qualifying stage – Jul, Aug
Group stage – Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec
Knock-out stage – Feb, Mar, Apr, May
Final – May

Even if the Europa League is the second-tier tournament, after the Champions League, there’s a great intensity and prestige in the competition. Since the largest clubs are playing in the Champions League, the Europa League has become a tournament where the clubs that’re just behind the most successful ones have a chance of competing for a trophy. A great example of this is the success that Sevilla has had in recent years. The club from the southern part of Spain has managed to bring home the trophy six times(!) since their first in 2006.

The Europa League final is always held at a pre-determined venue. It’s a one-off match where the play goes into extra time and penalties to decide a champion if the score should be tied after 90 minutes. The winner of the Europa League will play against the winner of the Champions League in the UEFA Super Cup, a match for the title as the best European club football team.

Indian players in the Europa League


Gurpreet Singh Sanhu is the name of the first Indian football player to ever make an appearance in the UEFA Europa League. His performance came back in 2016 when he started a game for his Norwegian side, Stabæk. Sanhu, who’s a goalkeeper with experience from the Indian national team, played 30 minutes in Stabæk’s game against Connah's Quay Nomads F.C. before he got injured. He’s later admitted that even though he got substituted due to a broken arm he couldn’t stop smiling knowing he was the first Indian player to have played in the Europa League.
Gurpreet Singh Sanhu stayed in Norway for three years before he moved back to India and started to represent Bengaluru in the Indian Super League.
