Gibraltar allocated one Champions League and one Europa League qualifying place

Next season, Gibraltar shall see a team playing in both the Champions League and Europa League qualifying stages, after UEFA made their decision on how many places to allocate to Gib.

 

This will see both the Champions of this season’s Premier Division, and either the Rock Cup winner, or the second place team (up to the GFA to decide) enter the Champions League and Euorpa League first qualifying rounds respectively.

 

Whilst it is most likely Lincoln that will win this season’s league, and take the Champions League spot, the Europa League spot could go a number of teams, especially if it is the Rock Cup winners who gain the qualifying spot.  Needless to say, the domestic competitions this season have been given an extra bit of excitement to them today.

  1. I’m surprised it wasn’t 3 teams which is how many Andorra and San Marino are allocated. Unless it’s a ‘probation’ period.
