With Arsenal winning the FA Cup, English football can make history if eight of their representatives win the European Cup next season. Since the 2019/20 season, UEFA has redistributed the European Cup slots.
The top 4 leagues in the UEFA league rankings have 4 places to go straight to the Champions League group stage. The three Europa League spots are in the order of finishing in national championships and domestic cup competitions.
The Premier League can become the first tournament in the history of European cups to have eight representatives to attend the Europa League. German and Spanish football can also do this feat, when there are teams participating in the Europa League season 2019/20.
With Arsenal’s FA Cup 2019/20 title, “Gunners” officially won the right to participate in the Europa League group stage next season. The Emirates Stadium team finished only 8th in the Premier League rankings this season. That means they can only attend the Europa League through the way to win the domestic cup.
Of the four major football backgrounds mentioned above, only English football has two domestic cups in a season, the League Cup and the FA Cup. So the team ranked 7th in the Premier League at the end of the season is unlikely to attend the Europa League. But must see the results of the League Cup and the FA Cup.
According to the priority order of the British Football Federation (FA), the FA Cup championship team will go straight to the group stage. And the winning team of the League Cup still has to attend the second qualifying round of the Europa League.
The 6th ranked Premier League team will have to attend the second qualifying round of the Europa League in accordance.
Tottenham is the team that must attend the preliminary round even though they are ranked above Arsenal on the Premier League chart.
7th place Wolves lost their place in the Europa League. Their last chance to kick the European Cup next season is to win the Europa League. A football industry can have a maximum of 5 clubs to attend the Champions League and 3 clubs to attend the Europa League.
In this case, if Wolves win the Europa League 2019/20, they will go straight to the Champions League group stage next season. Then, if Tottenham pass the second qualifying round of the Europa League.
