Ignore the odd naysayer, the Europa Conference League has been a smashing addition to the football calendar – just ask West Ham fans!
The Hammers battled all the way from the play-off round in August to lifting the trophy the following June in last season’s competition – and Premier League rivals Aston Villa will be hoping to repeat the feat in the 2023/24 campaign.
All roads lead to the Agia Sophia Stadium in Athens, Greece for the final and there is a snazzy trophy – as well as a place in next season’s Europa League – on the line.
