Europa Conference League draw - LIVE!

West Ham will play either Viborg FF or B36 Torshavn for a place in the Europa Conference League group stages. Those two sides face off in the third qualifying round of the competition, with the winner going through to face the Hammers later this month in the play-off round.

The first leg of that tie will take place on Thursday August 18, with West Ham having home advantage, before the return fixture a week later on August 25. David Moyes’ side host Brighton in the Premier League between those two matches. Viborg are currently fourth in the Danish Superliga, after the first three matches of the season, while Torshavn compete in the Faroe Islands Premier League.

West Ham will be looking for another European run this campaign, after they reached the semi-finals of the Europa League last season. They were beaten by eventual winners Eintracht Frankfurt.

13:01 , Matt Verri

The ‘ceremony’ has begun in Nyon. Fingers crossed the talking is kept to a minimum, though that is likely very optimistic.

Full draw for Europa League play-off round

12:55 , Matt Verri

Here’s all you need to know on the Europa League play-off round. Two draws down, one to go.

Next up - Europa Conference League! Your time has come, West Ham fans...

Europa League draw

12:52 , Matt Verri

Hearts could face Northern Irish side Linfield for a place in the Europa League group stage.

The loser of that tie will drop down into the group stage of the Europa Conference League.

12:44 , Matt Verri

West Ham are in the main path of the Europa Conference league draw, rather than the Champions path.

Fiorentina and Villarreal are some of the other teams in the main path, though they are in separate groups to West Ham so will not be drawn against David Moyes’ side.

Fenerbahce and Dundee United are both in Group 4, but like West Ham are seeded and so can only face an unseeded side. Anderlecht appear the most difficult opponent, should they get past Paide Linnameeskond in the third qualifying round.

Earlier today...

12:37 , Matt Verri

We’ve already had the fun of a couple of draws at Uefa HQ.

Rangers could face either Monaco or PSV if they are to make it to the Champions League group stage. Not what they were hoping for...

When will play-off round take place

12:26 , Matt Verri

The first leg of the play-off round ties will take place on Thursday, August 18, with the return leg taking place a week later on Thursday, August 25.

In between those games, West Ham host Brighton in the Premier League.

Who West Ham could face

12:20 , Matt Verri

West Ham will not learn their confirmed opponents until later this month, when the third qualifying round has been completed.

However, the club does know their opponent will be one of 10 teams and the Hammers will be, as seeds, drawn against an unseeded team.

Potential opponents:

  • Winner of Paide Linnameeskond (Estonia) vs Anderlecht (Belgium)

  • Winner of Wolfsberger (Austria) vs Gzira United (Malta)

  • Winner of Riga (Latvia) vs Gil Vicente (Portugal)

  • Winner of AIK (Sweden) vs Shkendija (North Macedonia)

  • Winner of Viborg (Denmark) vs B36 Torshavn (Faroe Islands)
