UEFA Competitions 2021/22


Recommended Posts


Five Scottish sides will qualify for UEFA competitions from next season.  Hearts will have to win this season's Scottish Cup to qualify





Wednesday 28 October 2020

UEFA have today announced Scotland will have five places in next season’s UEFA Club Competitions, increasing from the four spots they have held in previous years.

There will be sides representing the country in the Qualifying Rounds of the UEFA Champions League, the Qualifying Rounds of the UEFA Europa League as well as the newly introduced third UEFA club competition the UEFA Europa Conference League, which will begin in season 2021/22.

Scotland will now have two sides in the UEFA Champions League Qualifying Rounds. The winners of the Scottish Premiership will enter from the Third Qualifying Round and the second placed team in this season’s Scottish Premiership will enter from the Second Qualifying Round.

In the Europa League, there will be one place granted to the winners of the 2020/21 Scottish Cup and the club will enter into the Third Qualifying Round of the competition.

The clubs who finish in third and fourth place of the Scottish Premiership will enter into the newly created UEFA Europa Conference League from the Second Qualifying Round.

Interesting that winning the Cup outranks finishing third in the league in terms of entry to the higher UEFA competition. Exactly the way it should be, in my view. (I’m not sure whether third place and Cup winners have previously entered Europa League qualifying at the same stage or different stages.)

If Champions League qualifiers win the Scottish Cup then does place in Europa League go to third place team?
