Europa League Finals

The Europa League was re-branded in 2009 by UEFA who took on the running of the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1971 after it had increased in popularity since its formation in 1955 (becoming the second most lucrative trophy after the European Champions Cup for club sides to win on the continent). Originally designed to feature only one team from selected European cities the first competition with XI’s made up from London, Birmingham, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Basel, Leipzig, Lausanne, Cologne, Zagreb & Vienna was played in group stages before two legged knockouts up until and including the final with matches spread over 3 years. The second tournament (starting in 1958) concluded in 1960 but has since been played annually whilst the two leg final format stayed in place until 1997. Now over 150 teams from 55 European Football Associations participate annually with the prize not just a lucrative piece of silverware but also qualification for the following years Champions League.
