Besided the CL, there's also the UEFA Europa League. The 2009/2010 UEFA Europa League will be the first season of the UEFA Europa League, the competition previously known as UEFA Cup, which has been in existence for 39 years. A total of 193 teams from 53 UEFA associations are expected to participate in the 2009–10 UEFA Europa League. Countries are allocated places according to their UEFA league co-efficient. Also 10 losers from the Uefa CL play-off round and 8 third placed group stage teams will take part in this new format.
