Football - Europa League

With the success of the European Cup in the mid-1950s, European governing body UEFA decided to institute second-tier competitions the Cup-Winners' Cup for domestic cup holders and the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, contested by teams from the venues of the annual European trade fairs.
In the 1960s more teams were added before the birth of the UEFA Cup in 1971.
To mark the demise of the Fairs Cup, a special match was staged between the 1970/71 winners (Leeds United) and three-time champions Barcelona to decide who should keep the old trophy, which the Catalan giants won.
In 1999 the final stage of the competition's evolution occurred when the Cup Winners Cup was abolished and the respective National Cup winners were entered into the UEFA Cup.
From season 2009/10, the UEFA Cup transformed into the Europa League.
