As European football’s second club competition, the Europa League brings the continent’s lesser-known teams together for a shot at European glory.
The Europa League is an exciting mix of former footballing powerhouses chasing their glory days, small sides who’ve finished strongly in their domestic league, and continental giants which have crashed out of the Champions League at the group stage.

The Europa League has existed since 2009, when the former UEFA Cup and UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup merged to form a new tournament.
However, the competition goes back much further. The first UEFA Cup kicked off in the 1971/72 season, when Spurs triumphed in an all-English final with Wolves. Over the following decades, no single team dominated the tournament – though the likes of Real Madrid, IFK Göteburg and Borussia Mönchengladbach have claimed multiple titles.
Serie A teams have also had their fair share of success, particularly in the 1990s when all but one final featured at least one Italian side.
La Liga’s Sevilla were the team to beat during the 2000s, chalking up five wins from 2006 to 2016. Actually, Sevilla holds the record for the most UEFA Europa League titles, having won the competition six times since its inception.
Spain have been dominating this competition with 13 trophies, while Italy and England are both tied on 9 trophies. Teams from Spain have won the Europa League title in seven of the past ten editions.
