On 26 September 2008, UEFA announced the revamping of the UEFA Cup starting from season 2009/10 in a bid to raise the Cup's profile. The competition will be called the â€˜Europa League' and will start with 48 clubs in 12 groups.
According to a UEFA statement, "The changes to the name, logo and brand identity of the competition are the next logical step following the decision to alter the format of the UEFA Cup and create a true group stage, with both home and away matches."
The re-branding of the competition is expected to provide more revenue for the clubs involved as it has been restructured into a format very similar to that of the more prestigious Champions League.
"We believe that a new name and a new brand identity will help with sponsors and with the whole identity of the competition," said UEFA General Secretary David Taylor.

Union of European Football Associations (UEFA )
The Union of European Football Associations (French: Union des Associations EuropÃ©ennes de Football) is the administrative and controlling body for European football. It is almost always referred to by its acronym UEFA.
UEFA represents the national football associations of Europe, runs Europewide national and club competitions, and controls the prize money, regulations and media rights to those competitions.
UEFA was founded on 15 June 1954 in Basel, Switzerland following discussions between the French, Italian and Belgian FAs. The headquarters was in Paris until 1959 when the organization moved to Bern. Its administrative center has been in Nyon, Switzerland, since 1995.
