Important informations
1. The above list is going to be correct only if all teams have a regulated licence with the European football organization. So far some 'strange' things happened to the following clubs:
- These teams got rejected for the important permit: Tosno (cup winner from Russia), Aves (cup winner from Portugal), Ordabasy Shymkent (Kazakhstan) finishing third in the championship, Bangor City (Wales) finishing second in the playoff round.
- For match fixing are banned: Skenderbeu (Albania) who won the championship, but has been thrown out from UEFA for both European competitions on 10 years. Fifth placed Pyunik (Armenia) probably is going to replace Shirak, who finished in fourth spot as they are accused of knowing the results upfront.
- Estonia: although FCI Tallinn (FC Infonet Tallinn) already qualified, in 2017 the club has merged with Levadia Tallinn.
2. Depending on the coefficient, each club is going to start from: preliminaries, qualifying rounds or will enter directly in group stage.
3. Both EuroCups winning teams from this year, were already qualified through its championship for 2018-19 competitions.
4. The first draw of the new season is going to be performed on 19 June for the preliminary round.
