Will Portsmouth play in Europa League next year?

Posted on | April 13, 2010 | No Comments

Despite being relegated to the English Second Division with only five games to play this season, Portsmouth have big chances of playing in Europa League next year.

Portsmouth have qualified to FA Cup Final after a dramatic game with Tottenham, won after extra time with 2-0. After regular time the score was 0-0. Piquionne managed to open the score in 99 minute and Boateng doubled it in 117 minute.

Portsmouth will play Chelsea in FA Cup Final, which already has a place in Champions League for the next season. The club has debts of approximately €90 million and was already placed in juridical administration and a possible participation in Europa League would bring additional revenue.

But there is still a very important step to go for Portsmouth because they have not asked Uefa for permission of playing in Europe competitions before the deadline, which was in March.

Now the only thing remained for Portsmouth is to fight for their right to play in Europe.
