BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) – Norway, Finland and the Netherlands have received extra berths in qualifying for the Europa League based on UEFA's fair play rankings.
UEFA said on Tuesday that Norway topped the rankings, followed by the other two countries.
The nations are now able to nominate the club that received the fewest red and yellow cards. If that club has already qualified for a European competition, the second-placed team will be able to enter, and so forth.
The three clubs will enter the first round of Europa League qualifying next season.
