DistributionEdit

The title holder would have been given an additional entry if they did not qualify for the 2006–07 UEFA Champions League or Europa League through domestic performance; however, this additional entry was not necessary as Sevilla, winners of the 2005–06 UEFA Cup, qualified for the UEFA Cup through domestic performance. This means that the following changes to the default allocation system were made to compensate for the vacant title holder spot in the group stage:

  • The first UEFA Cup qualifying entrant of association 14 (Austria) gained direct access to the 1st round - Pasching.
  • The domestic cup winners of associations 19 and 20 (Switzerland and Norway) are moved from the first qualifying round to the second qualifying round.

Early issuesEdit

Italian match-fixing scandalEdit

The 2006 Serie A scandal resulted in major changes to the clubs that originally qualified in Italy. Originally, Roma took the cup winners' place as losing finalists in the 2006 Coppa Italia, as the winners, Internazionale finished in the top four in the league and qualified for the Champions League. The other two UEFA Cup places initially went to Lazio and Chievo.

Lazio, however, as well as the remaining three Champions League qualifiers (Juventus, Milan and Fiorentina), were formally indicted on 22 June on charges relating to the scandal.[4]

On 14 July, all four of the indicated clubs were penalised by an Italian court and the Italian Football Federation (FIGC). Results of the FIGC appeal were announced on 25 July. The impact on the UEFA Cup was:

  • Lazio were barred from European competition.
  • Roma and Chievo were promoted to the Champions League.
  • Palermo, Livorno and Parma were granted Italy's places in the UEFA Cup.

Greek Football FederationEdit

FIFA suspended the Hellenic Football Federation (HFF) from all international competitions on 3 July 2006 because of "political interference in sport" after the Greek government passed a law, giving it control of the sports authorities in Greece. After the law was amended to address FIFA's objections, FIFA reinstated the HFF on 12 July. The Greek government in response, decided to withdraw all of its funding to the Hellenic Football Federation.[5]

4Due to the armed conflict in Israel, UEFA had ruled that European tournament matches could not be played in Israel until further notice. Maccabi Haifa's home leg on 14 September was moved to Nijmegen, Netherlands. On 15 September, UEFA lifted the ban, allowing future matches to be played in the Tel Aviv area.[7] Hapoel Tel Aviv were able to play their home leg in Tel Aviv on 28 September.

5UEFA ordered Trabzonspor's home leg on 14 September to be played behind closed doors after objects were thrown at visiting fans and the fourth official, and a smoke bomb ignited in the stands, during their second qualifying round home leg against Cypriots APOEL. Trabzonspor appealed, and UEFA rejected the appeal on 13 September. Trabzonspor's penalty includes a second closed-doors game, a penalty which has been deferred for two years and will be removed if no further incidents occur.

Group stageEdit

Teams that have qualified for the group stage of the 2006–07 UEFA Cup
