The UEFA Europa League (UEL) is considered the second most important international competition for European clubs, after the UEFA Champions League (UCL). Clubs qualify for the Europa League based on their performance in their respective leagues and cup competitions. It has been organized since 1971 by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). It was known as the UEFA Cup at that time and Tottenham Hotspur won the inaugural competition.

In 2008, UEFA decided to change the name to UEFA Europe League from the 2009/10 season. The competition changed the format from knockout matches to a group stage in the first phase and a knock-out stage would succeed.

They also added that the third-placed teams in the group stage of UCL would be participating in the knock-out stage of the UEL. The winners of the UCL and UEL then face each other for the UEFA Super Cup title. The UEFA Europa League 2023-24 is currently going on so it's time, we look at the UEFA Europa League Winners List.
