2019–20 UEFA Europa League

49th season of Europe's secondary club football tournament organised by UEFA

The 2019–20 UEFA Europa League will be the 49th season of Europe's secondary club football tournament organised by UEFA, and the 11th season since it was renamed from the UEFA Cup to the UEFA Europa League. The last match will be played at the Stadion Energa Gdańsk in Gdańsk, Poland.[1] The winners of the 2019–20 UEFA Europa League will play against the winners of the 2019–20 UEFA Champions League in the 2020 UEFA Super Cup and will also automatically qualify for the 2020–21 UEFA Champions League group stage, and if they have already qualified through their league performance, the reserved place will be given to the third-placed team of the 5th-ranked association according to next season's access list.
