Europa League winners will get Champions League place from 2015-16

UEFA has confirmed that the 2015 Europa League winners will qualify for the following season's Champions League.

The move is designed to boost interest in Europe's secondary club tournament. Uefa has tried a number of initiatives to increase interest, with previous attempts including changing its name from Uefa Cup to its current title in 2009.

The decision at Uefa's Congress follows months of talks between the governing body and the European Club Association.
