UEFA Europa Conference League Day 1, Thursday Sep 16

By Chris Dinsdale

September 16, 2021 - The new UEFA Europa Conference League season kicks off. The new tournament is designed to enhance inclusivity, allowing more national associations to be represented in European competition. The winners will qualify for the 2022-23 UEFA Europa League, unless already participating in the UEFA Champions League.

The 2021-22 UEFA Conference League is the inaugural season of Europe’s third-tier club football tournament.

The season culminates with the final at the Arena Kombëtare in Tirana, Albania, on May 25, 2022.

The winners of the tournament automatically qualify for the 2022-23 Europa League group stage, and clubs qualify for the competition based on their performance in their national league and cup competitions.
