What Is The Europa Conference League? | Explained

► SUBSCRIBE to FOOTBALL DAILY: http://bit.ly/fdsubscribe

In our latest Football Daily: Explained we are attempting to get our heads around UEFA’s new creation; the Europa Conference League!

Set to run between 2021 and 2024, the new tournament is set to exist below the Champions League and Europa League, and provide clubs from smaller UEFA association members with their moment to enjoy football on the continent!

In this video we run through how the new tournament will operate, who you can exist to see in it next season, and how the Europa League has changed as a result! We look at the benefits for smaller footballing nations like Northern Ireland, but examine the risks for the likes of FC Basel in Switzerland, and those knocking on the door of Europa League football.

And finally we examine whether or not the big club sides will even take it seriously, and whether the UEFA Europa Conference League can survive if they don’t!

Finally a tournament for arsenal

Arsenal went from “founding member of super league” to “founding member of UEFA Europa Conference League” 🤣

Edit: They didn’t even manage to qualify 🤣
Trent Stanley
Trent Stanley:
To be fair if I was a champions league club scout, this would be perfect for seeing how players from smaller and obscure nations could stack up against different European opposition
Akshad Chavan
Akshad Chavan:
It's definitely a cash grab, but it will benefit smaller clubs so much. Especially teams from eastern and central Europe will have a good opportunity to show themselves. Plus the diversity in the competition would make it very unpredictable.

Brighton to qualify for the Europa conference league next season & win it on XG

Desmondinho:
If a club sees themselves as too big for the conference league, then just have your under 23s filling most of the squad. It’d be great European experience for them

Literally talking about this with people last night, had no idea who qualifies so thanks for this!

In Portugal, Santa Clara are going to be in their first ever European travel because of this competition.A very small club from the Azores having european money will make them very happy. And Paços de Ferreira will be in their second European travel in 10 years, because of the Comference League. This is one of the best ideas I have ever seen UEFA do.

A great idea for smaller clubs like arsenal to get a fair chance to win a European trophy 🏆

the winners should get into champions league play offs to boost up the competition.

This is great news for me since I can finally see my home country*s teams (Estonia) have a chance at Europe finally we can do something in Europe other than fail in the Europa League qualifiers👍

I’m looking forward to this new tournament, getting bored of watching the same teams from Spain and England dominate the current tournaments. Hopefully see some success for ‘smaller teams’.

I actually think this is a good idea, people say the quality is not great but it helps so many smaller clubs

Seems good,since the level of Europe League will go up,and at the same time the new tournament provides more opportunities for smaller teams.
It will be interesting to see how some big teams who end up there will approach it.

Spurs real betis final

Getting heavy Intertoto cup vibes from all this. A competition that was literally irrelevance personified.
BBT2K
BBT2K:
I think this is a good thing. It will be a great way to scout new talent and a way for smaller teams to face other teams across Europe and potentially add extra revenue but it could also impact certain teams across currently in Europa League from countries like Greece, Sweden, Norway, Denmark etc.
Elemental Keed
Elemental Keed:
I've been looking forward to this video,I have no Idea what that competition is about

I’m actually really excited to see these type of games although there were some fair points made on why it could just become troublesome for some teams. Tough situation

As an arsenal fan im really embarrassed going into this kind of competition but its good for teams that are not as good as the big clubs to compete for a trophy like west ham everton etc

"What is ECL?" The reason they didn't like the European super league. That's what it is.

MrLePov
MrLePov:
I'd imagine the bigger clubs from the top European leagues won't be very interested in the competition, but it could prove useful to them nonetheless.

For those teams it could be useful for keeping backup players match fit, and could be a fantastic opportunity for youth players. Could give them sporadic experience at senior level, which would not only help development, but also show their clubs if they are ready for regular senior football, whether that's on loan or in their first team.

For teams that don't spend a lot on players, this could give them better youth development and alter their transfer policies if certain young players impress.

The inky good I can see coming from this is that there will be fewer teams in the overbloated Europa League.

Why does it remind me of the defunct Intertoto Cup?
Lalit Thapa
Lalit Thapa:
Actually a brilliant competition for European football since small clubs just can't compete in the UCL with the elites now.The Gap is just way way big and underdog stories are almost extinct now.
Plus this really elevates the status of the Europa league when imo this season UEL>UCL(personal opinion). A good step for UEL and for better representation Of European clubs.

I do like how no team has a guareented place in the group stage, should try to make that work for all 3 competitions.

> UEFA: pratically retires smaller leagues champions of the UCL group stage

> UEFA too: creates a low tier competition to put them and call it "mOrE iNcLuSiVe"

It's an utter shambles of a tournament it's made it nearly impossible to get good European football for the lower leagues
What would make sense is if it only involved leagues outside the top 8 leagues

Even though this might be avery good decision
It will allow bigger clubs to poach players😥

It would be a perfect competition if they didn't duck up the Europa League and instead they added more teams.

Chris Jeffs
Chris Jeffs:
I think it’s an awesome idea, hopefully it should help improve standards at lower levels.
Which will attract attention from bigger clubs to buy there players for good money. if they are good enough and show metal in pressure cooker situations which European football does provide.

Just need fifa to make a World Cup lower ranked nations such as San Marino and Andorra who will never experience tournament football in turn never improve.
