The 2013–14 UEFA Europa League was the 43rd season of Europe's secondary club football tournament organised by UEFA, and the 5th season since it was renamed from the UEFA Cup to the UEFA Europa League.

The 2014 UEFA Europa League Final was played between Sevilla and Benfica at the Juventus Stadium in Turin, Italy,[1] which was won by Sevilla on penalties, giving them a record-tying third UEFA Cup/Europa League title.[2] Chelsea were the title holders, but did not defend their title as they qualified for the 2013–14 UEFA Champions League and reached the knockout stage.

Association team allocation[edit]

A total of 194 teams from 53 of the 54 UEFA member associations participated in the 2013–14 UEFA Europa League (the exception being Gibraltar, which should start participating in the 2014–15 season after being admitted as a UEFA member in May 2013).[3][4] The association ranking based on the UEFA country coefficients is used to determine the number of participating teams for each association:[5]

  • Associations 1–6 each have three teams qualify.
  • Associations 7–9 each have four teams qualify.
  • Associations 10–51 (except Liechtenstein) each have three teams qualify.
  • Associations 52–53 each have two teams qualify.
  • Liechtenstein has one team qualify (as it organises only a domestic cup and no domestic league).
  • The top three associations of the 2012–13 UEFA Respect Fair Play ranking each gain an additional berth.
  • Moreover, 33 teams eliminated from the 2013–14 UEFA Champions League are transferred to the Europa League.

The winners of the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League are given an additional entry as title holders if they do not qualify for the 2013–14 UEFA Champions League or Europa League through their domestic performance. However, this additional entry is not necessary for this season since the title holders qualified for European competitions through their domestic performance.

Association ranking[edit]

For the 2013–14 UEFA Europa League, the associations were allocated places according to their 2012 UEFA country coefficients, which took into account their performance in European competitions from 2007–08 to 2011–12.[6][7]

Apart from the allocation based on the country coefficients, associations may have additional teams participating in the Europa League, as noted below:

  • (FP) – Additional berth via Fair Play ranking (Sweden, Norway, Finland)[8]
  • (UCL) – Additional teams transferred from the Champions League

Redistribution rules[edit]

A Europa League place is vacated when a team qualifies for both the Champions League and the Europa League, or qualifies for the Europa League by more than one method. When a place is vacated, it is redistributed within the national association by the following rules:[5]

  • When the domestic cup winners (considered as the "highest-placed" qualifier within the national association with the latest starting round) also qualify for the Champions League, their Europa League place is vacated. As a result, either of the following teams qualify for the Europa League:
    • The domestic cup runners-up, provided they have not yet qualified for European competitions, qualify for the Europa League as the "lowest-placed" qualifier (with the earliest starting round), with the other Europa League qualifiers moved up one "place".
    • Otherwise, the highest-placed team in the league which have not yet qualified for European competitions qualify for the Europa League, with the Europa League qualifiers which finish above them in the league moved up one "place".
  • When the domestic cup winners also qualify for the Europa League through league position, their place through the league position is vacated. As a result, the highest-placed team in the league which have not yet qualified for European competitions qualify for the Europa League, with the Europa League qualifiers which finish above them in the league moved up one "place" if possible.
  • For associations where a Europa League place is reserved for the League Cup winners, they always qualify for the Europa League as the "lowest-placed" qualifier (or as the second "lowest-placed" qualifier in cases where the cup runners-up qualify as stated above). If the League Cup winners have already qualified for European competitions through other methods, this reserved Europa League place is taken by the highest-placed league team in the league which have not yet qualified for European competitions.
  • A Fair Play place is taken by the highest-ranked team in the domestic Fair Play table which have not yet qualified for European competitions.

Notes
  1. ^ Bosnia and Herzegovina (BIH): Borac Banja Luka, the third-placed team of the 2012–13 Premier League of Bosnia and Herzegovina, would have qualified for the Europa League first qualifying round, but failed to obtain a UEFA license.[16] As a result, the berth was given to Zrinjski Mostar, the ninth-placed team of the league, which were the highest-placed team with a UEFA license not yet qualified.
  2. ^ Bulgaria (BUL): CSKA Sofia, the third-placed team of the 2012–13 A PFG, would have qualified for the Europa League first qualifying round, but failed to obtain a UEFA license, due to high financial debts and the following announcement of the club going in bankruptcy.[17] As a result, the berth was given to Botev Plovdiv, the fourth-placed team of the league.
  3. ^ England (ENG): Swansea City are a club based in Wales, but participate in the Europa League through one of the berths for England as they won the 2012–13 Football League Cup (any coefficient points they earn count toward England and not Wales).
  4. ^ a b Greece (GRE):
    • PAS Giannina, the fifth-placed team of the 2012–13 Superleague Greece, would have qualified for the Europa League second qualifying round, but failed to obtain a UEFA license.[18] As a result, the berth was given to Xanthi, the seventh-placed team of the league, since Panathinaikos, the sixth-placed team of the league, also failed to obtain a UEFA license.[19]
    • On 14 August 2013, Metalist Kharkiv were disqualified from the 2013–14 UEFA club competitions because of previous match-fixing.[20] UEFA decided to replace Metalist Kharkiv in the Champions League play-off round with PAOK, who were eliminated by Metalist Kharkiv in the third qualifying round.[21]
  5. ^ a b Montenegro (MNE): Budućnost Podgorica and Grbalj, the winners of the 2012–13 Montenegrin Cup and the fourth-placed team of the 2012–13 Montenegrin First League respectively, would have qualified for the Europa League first qualifying round, but failed to obtain a UEFA license.[22] As a result, the berths were given to Rudar Pljevlja and Mladost Podgorica, the fifth- and sixth-placed teams of the league.
  6. ^ Republic of Ireland (IRL): Derry City are a club based in Northern Ireland, but participate in the Europa League through one of the berths for Republic of Ireland as they won the 2012 FAI Cup (any coefficient points they earn count toward Republic of Ireland and not Northern Ireland).
  7. ^ a b Spain (ESP): Málaga, the sixth-placed team of the 2012–13 La Liga, would have qualified for the Europa League play-off round, but were banned by UEFA from participating due to violations of UEFA Financial Fair Play Regulations.[23] As a result, Real Betis, the seventh-placed team of the league, entered the play-off round instead of the third qualifying round, and the third qualifying round berth was given to Sevilla, the ninth-placed team of the league, since Rayo Vallecano, the eighth-placed team of the league, failed to obtain a UEFA license.[24] Málaga appealed their ban to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, but it was denied.[25]
  8. ^ a b Turkey (TUR): On 25 June 2013, Beşiktaş and Fenerbahçe were banned by UEFA from the 2013–14 UEFA club competitions because of the 2011 Turkish sports corruption scandal.[26][27] They appealed the ban to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, and on 18 July 2013 it was ruled that the ban should be temporarily lifted and they should be included in the qualifying round draws of the Champions League and Europa League, until the final decision to be made before the end of August 2013.[28][29][30] Fenerbahçe competed in the Champions League qualifying rounds and lost in the play-off round, while Beşiktaş competed in the Europa League play-off round and won. On 28 and 30 August 2013, the Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld UEFA's ban on Fenerbahçe and Beşiktaş respectively, meaning the two clubs were banned from the 2013–14 UEFA Europa League.[31][32][33] UEFA decided to replace Beşiktaş in the Europa League group stage with Tromsø, who were eliminated by Beşiktaş in the play-off round,[34] while a draw was held to select a team to replace Fenerbahçe among the teams eliminated in the play-off round,[35] and was won by APOEL.[36]

Notes
  1. ^ a b Order of legs reversed after original draw.
  2. ^ On 14 August 2013, Metalist Kharkiv were disqualified from the 2013–14 UEFA club competitions because of previous match-fixing.[20] UEFA decided to replace Metalist Kharkiv in the Champions League play-off round with PAOK, who were eliminated by Metalist Kharkiv in the third qualifying round.[21] Thus, Maccabi Tel Aviv, the opponent of PAOK in the Europa League play-off round, qualified directly for the Europa League group stage.

The draw for the group stage was held in Monaco on 30 August 2013.[46] Prior to the draw, the Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld UEFA's ban on Fenerbahce (which lost in the Champions League play-off round) and Beşiktaş, meaning the two clubs were banned from the 2013–14 UEFA Europa League.[31][32][33] UEFA decided to replace Beşiktaş in the Europa League group stage with Tromsø, who were eliminated by Beşiktaş in the play-off round,[34] while a draw was held to select a team to replace Fenerbahçe among the teams eliminated in the play-off round,[35] and was won by APOEL.[36]

The 48 teams were allocated into four pots based on their 2013 UEFA club coefficients.[37][38][39] They were drawn into twelve groups of four, with the restriction that teams from the same association could not be drawn against each other.

In each group, teams played against each other home-and-away in a round-robin format. The matchdays were 19 September, 3 October, 24 October, 7 November, 28 November, and 12 December 2013. The group winners and runners-up advanced to the round of 32, where they were joined by the 8 third-placed teams from the 2013–14 UEFA Champions League group stage.

Knockout phase[edit]

In the knockout phase, teams played against each other over two legs on a home-and-away basis, except for the one-match final. The mechanism of the draws for each round was as follows:

  • In the draw for the round of 32, the twelve group winners and the four third-placed teams from the Champions League group stage with the better group records were seeded, and the twelve group runners-up and the other four third-placed teams from the Champions League group stage were unseeded. The seeded teams were drawn against the unseeded teams, with the seeded teams hosting the second leg. Teams from the same group or the same association could not be drawn against each other.
  • In the draws for the round of 16 onwards, there were no seedings, and teams from the same group or the same association could be drawn against each other.
