There are 18 European debutants among the 162 sides in the initial lineup for the 2014/15 UEFA Europa League.

In all, 195 clubs will compete for a place at the National Stadium, Warsaw on Wednesday 27 May 2015, once 33 have transferred from the UEFA Champions League. But for now the lineup consists of seven teams automatically in the group stage, led by holders Sevilla FC, 18 confirmed in each of the play-off and third qualifying rounds, 41 starting in the second qualifying round and 78 in the first qualifying round.

The draw for the first two stages, which run on Thursdays throughout July, is at 13.00CET on Monday and streamed live from Nyon. Involved in the opening round will be Gibraltar's first entrants, the appropriately named College Europa FC, plus fellow European debutants FC Santos Tartu, FK Lovćen, Stjarnan, Qäbälä FK, FC Veris, FK Haugesund and IF Brommapojkarna – who like Myllykosken Pallo-47 and Tromsø IL have entered thanks to their association's position in the Respect Fair Play rankings. Aberystwyth Town FC and FK Čukarički have only previously participated in the now defunct UEFA Intertoto Cup.

Making a UEFA competition bow in the second qualifying round will be SV Grödig, SKN St Pölten and Zawisza Bydgoszcz while scheduled to enter for the first time a stage later will be Hull City AFC, Rio Ave FC, FC Krasnodar, Kardemir Karabükspor and Ermis Aradippou FC. PEC Zwolle, who defeated AFC Ajax 5-1 in the Dutch Cup final, and FC Rostov debut in the play-off round.

A country's representation in the UEFA Europa League is determined by its UEFA coefficient ranking, which is calculated over a five-year basis.


The list below is provisional, however, and is subject to pending legal proceedings and final confirmation from UEFA.
