Fulham awarded Europa League spot

Fulham have been awarded a place in next season's Europa League after their performance in UEFA's Fair Play table.

The club's next campaign will now have to kick off on June 30 - just 39 days after the Premier League season ended - after UEFA gave Norway, England an extra place in the competition based on results from all UEFA club and international matches played over the season.

Mark Hughes' side had just one player sent off in league matches all year - that happened in the very last game leading to suggestions that relegated Blackpool could pip them to the spot.

Chelsea finished top of the Fair Play League but had already qualified for the Champions League and Fulham were in second spot.

The Premier League said in a statement: ''Fulham FC has finished the season as the highest placed club in the 2010-11 Fair Play League that has not already qualified for UEFA competitions via the 2010-11 Barclays Premier League.

''The club will take the additional European place awarded to England and compete in next season's UEFA Europa League.''
