Does the Carabao Cup winner qualify for Europa League next season? – The Sun04/22/2021
TOTTENHAM are taking on Man City as they look to deprive Pep Guardiola's men of a fourth straight Carabao Cup title.
But could the trophy be a ticket to European football for Spurs? Here's all you need to know.
Does the Carabao Cup winner qualify for the next season's Europa League?
The Carabao Cup winner does qualify for Europe next season but will NOT enter the Europa League.
Many fans will recall that the competition did provide a Europa League place to the winner as recently as last year.
However, the winner of the Carabao Cup will now qualify for Uefa's third tier competition – the Europa Conference League – instead.
But if the winner qualifies for Europe through other means by the end of the season, then this place is transferred.
Should Manchester City win the Carabao Cup, the Conference League place would be transferred to the team that finishes in sixth position in the Premier League.
And assuming the FA Cup winner finishes in the top five as well, the seventh placed team will pick up the Conference League place with the sixth placed team entering the Europa League proper.
What else do they win?
Aside from the silverware, the two teams in the final will also pocket some cash.
But it will not come as a huge windfall for the Premier League sides, with the winner taking home £100,000.
The runners-up will leave with £50,000.
