The creation of the tournament, which has the working title of UEL2, was approved following a meeting in Dublin, with the governing body saying its inception will ensure at least 34 countries will be represented in the group stages of UEFA club competitions.
Before the last 16 an additional knockout round will be played between the second-place finishers in the group stage and the sides who finished third in their respective Europa League groups.
