Europa League graphic night

Overview

About: Run by UEFA it is regarded as the second-tier competition behind the Champions League; History: UEFA Cup first ran in 1972 but was later replaced by Europa League in 2009; Number of Finals: 38 as UEFA Cup and 9 as Europa League:

After an exhilarating tournament which saw FC Sevilla lay claim to back to back titles, we thought we’d celebrate the competition thus far by taking a look at the host venues since the Europa League replaced the UEFA Cup in 2009.

The competition has been a great platform for newly built European Stadia which feature capacities between 35,000 – 55,000. The final three iterations of the UEFA Cup saw the final hosted in such diverse venues as Fenerbahçe’s Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium, Manchester City’s The Etihad Stadium, and Scotland’s Hampden Park in Glasgow.

Hopefully this is a trend which UEFA will continue, and it has to be said that so far, they’ve shone the spotlight on some cracking venues, which as follows are:
