How does the group stage work?

Teams in every group face each other home and away. The top three clubs in each group will continue their European campaigns in the new year:

• Group winners progress to the round of 16.

• Group runners-up go into the knockout round play-offs, where they will take on the third-placed UEFA Champions League teams for spots in the round of 16.

• Third-placed sides transfer to the UEFA Europa Conference League knockout round play-offs, where they play the group runners-up from that competition.

How did the draw work?

The teams were categorized into four pots according to their UEFA club coefficients. From each of these pots, one team was subsequently selected to be placed in each of the eight groups, labeled A to H.

However, certain conditions were applied: teams from the same national association couldn't be pitted against each other, and in some cases, teams from the same association were paired to ensure that they had different kickoff times (either 18:45 CET or 21:00 CET) for the convenience of television viewers.

Where is the 2024 Europa League final?

The 2023/24 UEFA Europa League season will conclude at the Dublin Arena in the Republic of Ireland on 22 May 2024.
