Portsmouth F.C. in European football

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Portsmouth F.C.'s record in Europe was in the 2008–09 UEFA Cup where they played Vitória Guimarães and Braga of Portugal, Italian team Milan and Heerenveen of the Netherlands. They qualified by winning the 2008 FA Cup final.

Two years later, Portsmouth were the runners-up of the 2009–10 FA Cup to Champions League-qualified Chelsea. However, Portsmouth did not obtain a UEFA licence, meaning they could not qualify for Europe. Portsmouth had appealed to UEFA, the Premier League and the English FA, but the latter two would not allow late applications for the licence. As a result, the seventh-placed team of the 2009–10 Premier League, Liverpool, claimed the Europa League spot in the third qualifying round.
