The All Important UEFA Cup Draw & Match Dates

The All Important UEFA Cup Draw & Match Dates

If anyone wants to know, here are the draw dates and match dates to look out for.

The draw for the UEFA cup second qualifying round is in Nyon on Friday 1st August at 1300 CET.

Matches to be played 14th Aug and 28th Aug

Draw for 1st round proper is in Monaco on 28th August at 1300 CET.

Matches played on 18th Sept and 2nd Oct.

I don't want to tempt fate yet but draw for the group stage is in Nyon on 7th Oct at 1200 CET.

As long as we can get a decent squad in, I really hope we can go far in this one. I am a real fan of the European competitions and, as long as it does not affect our league form, I really want to see a good, long run in the UEFA cup.

Am I being too optimistic? or can we really do it?

Here is a list of the teams who are entered (plus the Intertoto qualifiers) along with there coefficient to work out the seedings.

Some good teams in there, we could have some great european nights this year.

1 more qualfying round
27/07/2008 10:59:00
There seems alot of teams on that list much more than I thought, I thought it was a bit more exclusive!
27/07/2008 11:07:00
ill take AC Juvenes-Dogana please, i can wait for the glamour ties a nice easy passage to the group stage will do me fine
27/07/2008 11:20:00
Queen of the South would be a good draw.
27/07/2008 11:29:00

27/07/2008 11:45:00

27/07/2008 12:02:00
am I right in thinking we have two more teams to play before we get to the group stage!? and is this the same for all the teams listed above or do some them go directly into the group stage? Cause there are some good teams there!! and i for one would like a realitively easy ride to the groups.
