The UEFA Europa League is an annual football club competition organised by UEFA for eligible European football clubs. Previously known as the UEFA Cup, it replaced the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1971. Clubs qualify for the competition based on their performance in their national leagues and cup competitions. It is now the second-tier competition of European club football, ranking below the UEFA Champions League and above the UEFA Europa Conference League after being a third-tier competition from 1971 to 1999 before the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup was discontinued. The competition has been known as the Europa League since the 2009–10 season, following a change in format.
