Extra UEFA cup spot for English team next season

An additional English club will compete in the first qualifying round of next season's UEFA Cup after England finished top of the 2007/08 UEFA Fair Play ranking.

Seven in the running

Four English clubs will now compete in the UEFA Cup. Seven other national associations – Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Spain and France – all with a coefficient equal to, or higher than, 8.0 will go into a draw for a further two places in the 2008/09 UEFA Cup first qualifying round. The draw will be made in between the two UEFA Cup finalists' press conferences at the City of Manchester Stadium in north-west England on Tuesday 13 May, from approximately 14.30 local time.

Minimum 34 matches

The UEFA Fair Play competition for the 2007/08 season began on 1 May 2007 and finished on 30 April 2008. Only associations having played a minimum of 34 matches have been taken into account. This cut-off is defined as the total number of UEFA games divided by the number of national associations.

Fair Play assessments

The Fair Play competition is based on the Fair Play assessments made by official UEFA delegates at all UEFA competition matches (club and national teams). The coefficient is based on criteria such as positive play, respect of the opponent, respect of the referee, behaviour of the crowd and of team officials, as well as cautions and dismissals.

Domestic Fair Play winners

The three associations which are allocated an additional UEFA Cup place will be entitled to enter the club that has won the domestic top-division Fair Play competition. If this side has already qualified for the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Cup, the domestic Fair Play competition will continue to apply, and the second-placed team may be entered. If the second-placed side has qualified for the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Cup, the third-placed team in the domestic Fair Play tournament may be considered, and so forth.

Fair Play conduct

Even a club which has been relegated to the second-highest domestic division could qualify for the UEFA Cup as a result of its exemplary Fair Play conduct during the domestic championship. In any case, only sides which have received the UEFA Licence will be able to participate in the UEFA Cup.

Well done to them (tu)

It's City getting it, Europe and a top 10 finish in his first season. Fuck off Thaksin, Sven must stay.

How do you know it's City?

City fans don't even want Thakisn to leave, it's more of a case of pro-Sven than anti-Thaksin.

City needed to have something like 3 people sent off to lose the place, if they had it would have went to Fulham.

I didn't say i wanted him to leave, i just don't want an interfering chairman ala Romanov at Hearts or Mandaric at Leicester. I also think Sven's done a pretty good job in his first season, considering where they finished last season and the squad he was left to start with.
