This qualification list reflects the new format that will be used in the 2015-18 cycle
of the Champions League and the Europa League. The title holder of the Europa League,
Sevilla, will be granted access to the group stage of the Champions league because
the CL title holder spot will not be used (FC Barcelona
already qualified to the group stage by the domestic league).
For Europa League this implies that the cup winner of the 13th country on the ranking
list (Switzerland) has direct access to the group stage, the cup winner of the 18th
country on the ranking list (Cyprus) has direct access to the 3rd qualifying round,
and the cup winners of the 24th and 25th countries on the ranking list (Sweden and
Bulgaria) have direct access to the 2nd qualifying round of the Europas League.
