    The 2016–17 UEFA Europa League is the 46th season of Europe's secondary club football tournament organised by UEFA, and the 8th season since it was renamed from the UEFA Cup to the UEFA Europa League.

    The 2017 UEFA Europa League Final will be played at the Friends Arena in Solna, Sweden

    The winners of the 2016–17 UEFA Europa League will qualify for the 2017–18 UEFA Champions League, and also earn the right to play against the winners of the 2016–17 UEFA Champions League in the 2017 UEFA Super Cup.

    A total of 188 teams from 54 of the 55 UEFA member associations are expected to participate in the 2016–17 UEFA Europa League (the exception being Kosovo, whose participation was not accepted in their first attempt as UEFA members). The association ranking based on the UEFA country coefficients is used to determine the number of participating teams for each association:
    • Associations 1–51 (except Liechtenstein) each have three teams qualify.
    • Associations 52–54 (except Gibraltar) each have two teams qualify.
    • Liechtenstein and Gibraltar each have one team qualify (Liechtenstein organises only a domestic cup and no domestic league; Gibraltar as per decision by the UEFA Executive Committee).
    • Moreover, 33 teams eliminated from the 2016–17 UEFA Champions League are transferred to the Europa League.
    • Since the winners of the 2015–16 UEFA Europa League, Sevilla, qualified for the 2016–17 UEFA Champions League, their berth in the 2016–17 UEFA Europa League (which they qualified for as the seventh-placed team of the 2015–16 La Liga) is vacated and not replaced by any other team.
