Cardiff in Europe

There's a lot of talk on the Pompey board that Cardiff won't qualify for Europe if they win the cup because they're Welsh and can't enter it through the English FA. Can anyone shed any light on this?

I think we've been in European "no mans land" for a few years now since we were taken out of the Welsh Cup.

It never seemed to matter then......................

As it stands Cardiff will not be put forward by the FA to represent them in the UEFA Cup. We've enjoyed many European nights via the Welsh Cup in the dim and distant past but the boot is on the other foot at the moment.

I believe it's because Cardiff can't represent England in the UEFA cup, worked in reverse before when Shrewsbury and Hereford won the the Welsh Cup. Great result yesterday great weekend for the FA cup

From the BBC News site:

English clubs are offered three places in the Uefa Cup - for the FA Cup winners, the Carling Cup winners and the fifth-placed team in the Premier League.

Tottenham have qualified for the Uefa Cup by winning the Carling Cup.

Should a team finishing in the top four in the Premier League win the FA Cup (still technically possible in Portsmouth), the Uefa Cup place would go to the team finishing sixth in the league.

If Cardiff City win the FA Cup then, as it stands, they are not allowed to qualify for the Uefa Cup because they are registered with the Football Association of Wales and would not be put forward as one of England's representatives. In that instance, the FA Cup runners-up would take their place in the Uefa Cup - although the Football Association are reviewing their rules.


As mentioned aboved, if a team wins the Champions League but finishes outside the top four, then a Uefa Cup place will go to the fourth-placed team.

If Portsmouth win the FA Cup and finish fifth in the Premier League, the sixth-placed team in the league would enter the Uefa Cup, not the FA Cup runners-up.
