Uefa will announce on Friday whether the Europa League winners will be rewarded with a Champions League qualifying spot from 2016.
The move would be designed to boost interest in Europe’s secondary club tournament.
The decision follows months of discussions between the European Club Association (ECA) and Uefa officials.
Meanwhile, Berlin’s Olympic Stadium has been revealed as the venue for the Champions League final in 2015.
That year’s Europa League decider will be at Warsaw’s National Stadium, which staged the opening game of Euro 2012.
