Access list 2007/2008

UEFA European Cup Football
by Bert Kassies

The information on this page is based upon the access list 2007/08 that UEFA sent to the national associations in February 2007. The access list includes the entries for the title holders.

Since the title holder AC Milan qualified for the 3rd qualifying round of the Champions League, the champions of the 23th and 24th countries on the ranking list (Denmark and Hungary) have direct access to the 2nd qualifying round, and the champion of the 16th country on the ranking list (Switzerland) has direct access to the 3rd qualifying round.

The UEFA Cup cup-holder spot will not be used because Sevilla qualified for the Champions league or the UEFA Cup. This implies that the cup winner of the 14th country on the country ranking list (Czech Republic) will gain direct access to the 1st round round, and that the cup winners of the 19th and 20th countries on the ranking list (Norway, and Austria) have direct access to the 2nd qualifying round of the UEFA Cup.

Scotland and Norway did not apply for the Intertoto Cup. Therefore Denmark and Hungary may start in round 2, and Romania can sent an extra team to the 1st round. Also Andorra was invited to take part, and starts in round 1.
