The 2014/15 UEFA Europa League begins with the draw for the first and second qualifying rounds at UEFA's headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, on 23 June 2014 and ends with the final at the National Stadium, Warsaw on Wednesday 27 May 2015.

A country's representation in the UEFA Europa League is determined by its UEFA coefficient ranking, which is calculated over a five-year basis. Seven teams automatically enter this season's competition in the group stage, with a further 155 sides starting their campaigns in the qualifying and play-off rounds, and 33 more joining from various phases of the UEFA Champions League including eight third-place group finishers entering the round of 32. Among the entrants are Gibraltar's first in this competition, the appropriately named College Europa FC.

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