Since Turkey dropped from 11th to 15th place in the UEFA association coefficient rankings at the end of the 2005–06 season, the cup winner (or the third-placed team if the domestic cup winner already qualified for UEFA Champions League) will not directly be entered into the first round of the UEFA Cup, but would begin in the second qualification round.
