Preliminary Qualifying round has been drawn.

Folgore (San Marino) vs Prishtina (Kosovo)
HB Tórshavn (Faroe Islands) vs Inter Club d'Escaldes (Andorra)

One team to make it into the 1st Round of Qualifying which is drawn next week (where some teams you might have actually heard of enter - eg Dinamo Zagreb, Malmo and Andy Morrisons Connah's Quay Nomads).

FWIW, I am told Ryanair have applied for a Manchester to St Petersburg slot. Watch this space....

HB Torshavn was Gunnar Nielsen’s first club…

This is why the competition is described as boring
There is nothing in any of the pots that excites - we've been there and done that.

Disagree - some very interesting trips in pots 3 and 4 on the cards. Even in Pot 2, if we avoid Real or Barca, it's been a few years since we've been to the others.

After a year and a bit of no travel, Porto has revealed an almighty itch that needs to be scratched.

Just need the government to let us go and have a nice time and not piss about with endless and (in retrospect) redundant testing.
