Haverfordwest County AFC have been drawn to face KF Shkëndija in the UEFA Europa Conference League First Qualifying Round.
The draw, which took place in Geneva, included the Bluebirds for the first time since 2004, after we ended our 19-wait to qualify by coming through the JD Cymru Premier European play-offs in May.
Prior to the draw, County were allocated Group 5, which gave us a list of five possible opponents. We were number 10, while Shkëndija were number 2.
The format for the draw saw a ball from the unseeded pot placed in a bowl alongside a ball from the seeded pot. The team who were drawn first play the first leg at home. Shkëndija’s number was drawn first, followed by Haverfordwest County’s to set up the tie.
This means that we will be away in the first leg on July 13, before returning for the second leg at the Cardiff City Stadium on July 20.
Information around a supporters travel package, along with kick-off times, will be confirmed in due course, as will ticketing details.
