What is the UEFA Europa Conference League?
The UEFA Europa Conference League is being played for the first time in the 2021-22 season, so a lot of people don’t really know what it is.
The Europa Conference League is the No. 3 club competition in Europe, behind the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League. In England, for example, the teams that qualify for the competition (“get into Europe“) are typically the club that finishes sixth in the Premier League and the one that wins the League (or Carabao) Cup.
All these European competitions, aside from their Finals, take place during the same weeks of the schedule, with Champions League games on Tuesday and Wednesday nights and Europa and Conference League games on Thursday nights. In fact, other than the Final, the dates for the Conference League are the same as the dates for the 2022-23 Europa League.
Here is more on the UEFA Europa Conference League.
