Europa League last 16 ties this season will be played in March, with first leg matches to take place on Thursday 10 March and second leg matches a week later on Thursday 17 March.

The draw for the quarter-finals and semi-finals, mapping out the full tournament bracket for the remainder of the competition, will be made the day after the last 16 ties conclude – 18 March.

The 2022 Europa League final will be played at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, home of record winners Sevilla, on Wednesday 18 May. As has been the case for several years, whichever club wins will automatically qualify for next season’s Champions League group stage.
