UEFA Europa League 2009-2010 Schedule

See the latest Europa League draw article.

From next season, the UEFA Cup will be known as the UEFA Europa League (previous discussion on name change).

Apart from the name change, the event has been overhauled and will now feature 12 groups of four teams, with each team playing the other three sides and the two top competitors moving on. Title holders and ten clubs removed from the UEFA Champions League play-off round will take part in the group stage.

To qualify for the UEFA Europa League group stage, four preliminary rounds will take place.
