The 2016–17 UEFA Europa League qualifying phase and play-off round began on 28 June and ended on 25 August 2016. A total of 154 teams competed in the qualifying phase and play-off round to decide 22 of the 48 places in the group stage of the 2016–17 UEFA Europa League.[1]

All times are CEST (UTC+2).

Round and draw dates[edit]

The schedule of the competition was as follows (all draws were held at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, unless stated otherwise).[1][2][3]

Round Draw date and time First leg Second leg
First qualifying round 20 June 2016, 13:00[4][5] 30 June 2016 7 July 2016
Second qualifying round 20 June 2016, 14:30[5][6] 14 July 2016 21 July 2016
Third qualifying round 15 July 2016, 13:00[7][8] 28 July 2016 4 August 2016
Play-off round 5 August 2016, 13:00[9][10] 18 August 2016 25 August 2016

Matches could also be played on Tuesdays or Wednesdays instead of the regular Thursdays due to scheduling conflicts.


In the qualifying phase and play-off round, each tie was played over two legs, with each team playing one leg at home. The team that scored more goals on aggregate over the two legs advanced to the next round. If the aggregate score was level, the away goals rule would be applied, i.e., the team that scored more goals away from home over the two legs advanced. If away goals were also equal, then thirty minutes of extra time would be played, divided into two fifteen-minutes halves. The away goals rule would be again applied after extra time, i.e., if there were goals scored during extra time and the aggregate score was still level, the visiting team advanced by virtue of more away goals scored. If no goals were scored during extra time, the tie would be decided by penalty shoot-out.[1]

In the draws for each round, teams were seeded based on their UEFA club coefficients at the beginning of the season, with the teams divided into seeded and unseeded pots. A seeded team was drawn against an unseeded team, with the order of legs in each tie decided by draw. Due to the limited time between matches, the draws for the second and third qualifying rounds took place before the results of the previous round were known. For these draws (or in any cases where the result of a tie in the previous round was not known at the time of the draw), the seeding was carried out under the assumption that the team with the higher coefficient of an undecided tie advanced to this round, which means if the team with the lower coefficient was to advance, it simply took the seeding of its defeated opponent. Prior to the draws, UEFA may form "groups" in accordance with the principles set by the Club Competitions Committee, but they are purely for convenience of the draw and for ensuring that teams from the same association are not drawn against each other, and do not resemble any real groupings in the sense of the competition.[1]


A total of 154 teams were involved in the qualifying phase and play-off round (including the 15 losers of the Champions League third qualifying round which enter the play-off round). The 22 winners of the play-off round advanced to the group stage to join the 16 teams which enter in the group stage and the 10 losers of the Champions League play-off round.[1]

Below are the participating teams (with their 2016 UEFA club coefficients),[11][12] grouped by their starting rounds.[13][14]
