The UEFA Conference League is a competition between soccer teams that belong to UEFA. It serves as a continuation of the Champions League and the Europa League, making it the third level of European tournaments. Such a tournament is reserved for teams that have qualified for national leagues. There are 184 teams from different countries. You can see the actual statistics of the matches already played on the scores24 website. Here you can find a bookmaker’s office in order to bet on the next matches.
Format and selection features
Qualifying rounds are held in several stages. Based on playoff results, teams advance to the main grid. The group stage will include 32 teams.
The format will include 8 groups of 4 teams each. There will be several matches throughout the conference. At the beginning, teams will meet in the tiebreaker matches.
According to the results of the games, the winners and second-place groups will move on to the 1/8 finals. After that, they will need to go through several quarterfinals, semifinals. The strongest will qualify for the finals.
In addition, the scheme of selection for the Europa League has been changed. Winners of the previous tournament will also take part in the group stage. With the introduction of the new tournament, all teams can show themselves in matches to be held over a month.
When are the tournaments held
This year, all UEFA tournaments are held in the same mode, starting from the group stage. According to the new schedule, games are played at 6:45 p.m. and 9 p.m. The Conference League and the Europa League take place on Thursdays. And the Champions League, as before, continues on Tuesday and Wednesday. It is worth noting that the first winner of the Conference League will be chosen at the end of May 2022 in Tirana, the capital of Albania. The elimination match between the two semifinal winners will be played at the Air Albania Stadium.
Why do we need a new UEFA tournament?
The president of UEFA, who directs the launch of the tournament, is of the opinion that the new UEFA club tournament will greatly simplify access to the European Champions Cup.
As the number of matches that are available to many associations has been increased.
In addition, the innovation was that with all 32 teams in the group stage, the smaller associations play first. This allows them to prove themselves and qualify for the Europa League.
In the 15-game weeks, there must be 141 contests. From all participants in the tournament, only 32 teams will be allowed to qualify for the Europa League instead of 48.
What do the winners get?
The trophy of this year’s tournaments is sure to please the winners. The cup, which consists of 32 hexagonal plates, 57.5 cm high, weighs about 11 kg. The idea of the creators is that each participant of the group stage is one plate. They are located at the base of the trophy, they can be rotated and bent upwards.
The moment of bright impressions for every fan will be the curve of the plates, which resembles the flight of a soccer ball to the goal. The base and the top of the cup are made of bronze. While the plates are equipped with a shiny silver finish.
The tournament branding for the soccer tournament presents an optimistic, inspiring and open-minded character. In addition to the Conference League brand, the Europa League identity has been updated to reflect the increased competition and the more difficult selection. The logo is larger and the wave of energy now has a dynamic character, with angular lines.
The Europa League and Conference League brands have been specifically designed to blend together. Together or separately, they are capable of providing a sea of positive impressions from watching a soccer match.
The sponsorship rights have been obtained for both the Europa League and the Conference League. This was a great opportunity for marketing moves that take place on Thursday nights, as well as an exclusive association of sponsors with the tournaments.
“The UEFA Conference League is a pretty exciting proposition for our broadcasters and partners,” said UEFA marketing director Guy-Laurent Epstein. – “It will give them unprecedented coverage in more markets and an opportunity to reach new audiences. Sponsoring this tournament is sure to pay dividends for the money invested.
