Premier League Format
The Premier League consists of 20 teams. The season traditionally runs from August to May, the bottom three teams at the end of that period are relegated to the Championship. The top 4 teams qualify for the Champions League next season. Teams finishing between 5th and 7th qualify for the Europa League next season. Things can change slightly if a Premier League club wins one of the European Cups, see official Premier League explanations on permutations here;
If the winners of the FA Cup finish in the top five, their UEL spot goes to the next-placed team in the PL yet to qualify
If the winners of the EFL Cup finish in the top five, their UEL spot goes to the next-placed team in the PL yet to qualify
Should a Premier League club win the UEFA Champions League they will automatically qualify for the group stage of next season’s competition regardless of their league finishing position.
A maximum of five Premier League teams are eligible for UEFA Champions League qualification.
In the event that a Premier League club win the UEFA Champions League and another win the UEFA Europa League and neither club finish in the top four of the PL, the club lying fourth in the Premier League will drop into the UEFA Europa League group stage.
