Gibraltar gains an additional spot in the Europa League

The Gibraltar FA is pleased to announce that UEFA have this morning confirmed the grant of an additional spot in next year’s UEFA Europa League to Gibraltarian clubs.

This means that as from next season, three Gibraltarian clubs will participate in UEFA club competitions, as follows:

 

First Division champions

UEFA Champions League

Rock Cup champions

UEFA Europa League

First Division runners-up

UEFA Europa League

 

Therefore, in addition to this season’s winner of the Rock Cup, the First Division runner-up will also participate in the UEFA Europa League next year. Should the winner of the Rock Cup already have qualified for Europe by virtue of being 1st or 2nd in the league, then the additional UEFA Europa League spot will pass to the 3rd placed team in the league.

The grant of an additional spot has come about through an increase in Gibraltar’s association club co-efficient rankings, itself the result of the progress to QR2 made by Europa FC this season and Lincoln Red Imps FC for the past two seasons (in their respective European competitions). This increase in the co-efficient prompted the GFA to write to UEFA formally requesting an additional spot in the UEFA Europa League next year. Following further discussions between GFA officials and UEFA at the recent Congress in Athens, the GFA’s request has now been granted by the UEFA Executive Committee.
