The Europa League is one of the most prestigious soccer contests of all. Otherwise known as the UEFA Europa League, this illustrious contest is comprised of 17 teams which automatically enter, and 31 teams that qualify for the contest. By the time the final takes place at the end of the season, hundreds of clubs will have been involved. The season officially kicks off with preliminary round draws in June and, and the semi-finals and the final take place in May the next year.
UEFA finalizes the Europa League calendar as the season progresses. Until recently, online Europa League betting was limited to US soccer fans. Thankfully, on May 14, 2018, New Jersey’s months old court case was finally resolved by the Supreme Court of the United States. The Supreme Court justices voted 6:3 in favor of overturning the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA). This means that leading US bookmakers like 888sport USA can now offer you top Europa League betting odds online.
UEFA Europa League betting options comprise hundreds of clubs across Europe, and beyond. Top teams like Arsenal (England), Frankfurt (Germany), Lazio (Italy), Marseille (France) Milan (Italy), Sporting CP (Portugal), Barcelona (Spain), Real Madrid (Spain), Zenit St Petersburg (Russia), Olympiacos (Greece), Sparta Praha (Czech Republic), and Maccabi Tel Aviv (Israel), are some of the many world-class teams competing in the Europa League Championship.
