The UEFA Europa League is taking on increasingly greater importance as a tournament within the European continental framework and there are a number of factors contributing to its growth.

On the field, the competition is second only to the UEFA Champions League. In fact, Champions League quality teams often make their way into the Europa League with Barcelona, RB Leipzig and Atalanta in that class this year.

In addition to European silverware for the team left standing, there’s also an automatic bid to the following season’s Champions League, which is prestigious, financially lucrative, and helps with player recruitment. A place in the August showcase event UEFA Super Cup is also guaranteed for the winner.

And if all that weren’t enough, there’s a windfall in store for the team that hoists the trophy on May 18 in Seville, Spain. Below is a full breakdown of the cash that’s been dispensed so far and what’s coming the way of teams that can advance further in the 2021-22 edition.
