Europa League 2021-22: Groups, schedule, results and everything you need to know about the UEFA's club competitionGetty
Here's everything you need to know about this season's Europa League.

Thirty-two teams will enter. Another eight will arrive in the knockouts. Only one will be named champion.

The marathon that's known as the UEFA Europa League enters the group stage for the 2021-22 season, with a more normal schedule set after the COVID-19 pandemic necessitated truncated versions over the past two seasons.

The bigger leagues are well represented, as usual, in the current edition, with the likes of Leicester City, Bayer Leverkusen, Napoli and Real Sociedad joined by clubs from smaller circuits throughout the continent.

With such a varied set of teams, there's always potential for things to go against plan — which is a lot of the fun of these kinds of competitions.

Will the cream rise to the top as expected, or will fans be treated to a Cinderella story (or two) along the way to the final?

Here's everything you need to know about this season's Europa League.

Which Canadians are playing in Europa League 2021-22?


Milan Borjan, Red Star Belgrade

Canada's No. 1, Milan Borjan has been a mainstay in European competitions for years.

He gets another crack at glory as the leader of Red Star Belgrade, which advanced to the round of 32 last season and was only eliminated on away goals after drawing consecutive matches against Italian power AC Milan.

Scott Arfield, Rangers

The dependable central midfielder brings a wealth of experience and attacking nous to a Rangers side eager for continental glory.

Arfield hasn't featured for Canada since 2019, but head coach John Herdman said recently that the 32-year-old could still be in the mix for the team's World Cup qualifying campaign. Ragerdless, Arfield looks to play a prominent role for Steven Gerrard's Rangers in Group A.

Iké Ugbo, Genk

A recent recruit to the Canadian national team, Ugbo played for England's youth sides and was eligible for Nigeria before committing to the Maple Leaf. The 23-year-old striker is a product of Chelsea and broke out as a legitimate scoring threat at the men's level during loan spells to Roda JC and Cercle Brugge.
