> The winner of the European Qualifier will play a match with the right to the last available European ticket. And this, against the fourth of the final classification of the Champions Qualifiers.

How are the different European tickets distributed?

Belgium has a total of 5 tickets granting access to the European Cup which are distributed as follows:

The winner of the Champions Qualifiers is crowned champion and will play in the UEFA Champions League

The second round of the Champions League qualifiers will be played in the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League

The play-off round of the third tournament will play the final round of the Conference League qualifiers

The winner of the final match between 4 of the Champions Qualifiers and the winner of the European Qualifiers will play the second qualifying round of the Conference League

Finally, the Belgium Cup winner will play the final round of the Europa League qualifiers

Be careful, there are some subtleties:

If the Federation finishes fourth in the Champions Qualifiers, it will be the third to face the winner of the European Qualifiers.

And after that, you still have to take into account the result of the Belgian Cup final (La Gantois faces Anderlecht on April 18). As the Pro League explained:


1. If the cup winner participated in the Champions Qualifiers and finished in first or second place
The final match will not take place between the fourth round of the Champions Qualifiers and the winner of the European Qualifiers for the second ticket of the European Conference League. European tickets will be distributed as follows:

The champions (group stage) and runners-up (third preliminary round) qualify for the UEFA Champions League.

The Europa League qualification ticket for the cup winner goes to the third round of the Champions Qualifiers.

The fourth of the Champions Qualifiers and the fifth (the winner of the European Qualifiers) advance to the European Conference League.

2.
If the winner participates in the Champions Qualifiers and finishes in 3rd or 4th place
The final match will not be played either. The cup winner keeps his ticket to the last preliminary round of the European League. The other club ranked third or fourth in the Champions League qualifiers gets the best ticket to the Europa League. The other ticket to the Europa League ultimately goes to the winner of the European qualifiers.

3.
If the winner goes to the European qualifiers and wins it
No final match will be played. The cup winner keeps his ticket to the last preliminary round of the European League. The fourth in the Champions Qualifiers qualifies directly for the second preliminary round of the European League.
