UEFA changes the name of the Europa Conference League two years after introducing the competition

UEFA Conference League

UEFA introduced the Europa Conference League two seasons ago, with Jose Mourinho becoming the first manager to lift all the UEFA club trophies by winning the first one with AS Roma.

Last season, West Ham won the second edition after they defeated Fiorentina in the final to become the second English club to win a European trophy in that campaign.

The Hammers will play in the Europa League proper next season because of that victory, and Aston Villa will represent England in the Conference League, with Unai Emery hopeful he can work his magic there.

The Daily Mail reveals UEFA has now changed the name of its lowest club competition from the Europa Conference League to the UEFA Conference League.

Their leaders have voted in this change, and it will take effect from the 2024/2025 season, with clubs competing to earn one of the most interesting trophies in European football.

The last two editions gave chances to clubs who would ideally not play in Europe for their country, so it is a competition that will benefit several teams on the continent.
