The 48 entrants are split into four seeding pots based on their club coefficients, with each of the eventual 12 groups to contain one team from each seeding tier.
The 22 play-off winners, the 10 losing teams from the UEFA Champions League play-offs and the 16 sides entering at this stage make up the 48 clubs that go into the group stage draw. No team can play a club from their own association.
The UEFA Europa League Player of the Season award will be presented during the ceremony.
