The draws for the third qualifying rounds of the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League will be streamed live on UEFA.com from Nyon on Friday 18 July.
Starting with the UEFA Champions League draw for both the champions and league paths at 12.00CET, then the UEFA Europa League equivalent at 13.00CET, the ceremonies will be conducted by UEFA General Secretary Gianni Infantino and UEFA competitions director Giorgio Marchetti.
UEFA Champions League
The draw for the champions path will involve 20 teams: automatic entrants FC Salzburg, APOEL FC and Aalborg BK, plus the 17 second qualifying round winners. These sides will be divided into two groups, in each of which half of the teams/pairings will be seeded according to their UEFA coefficients.
In the league path, in which all ten third qualifying round contenders are beginning their campaigns, five sides will be seeded and five teams unseeded. Ties in both paths will be played on 29/30 July and 5/6 August.
UEFA Europa League
Fifty-eight clubs will figure, 18 directly qualified and the 40 second qualifying round winners. These sides will be split into four groups of 12 teams/pairings and one group of ten teams/pairing. In each group, an equal number of teams/pairings will be seeded and unseeded, in accordance with the club rankings established at the start of the season. Ties will be played on 31 July and 7 August.
• In the draws for both competitions, if a side in the second qualifying round has an individual coefficient which entitles them to be seeded in the third qualifying round, the winner of the second qualifying round tie featuring that club is automatically seeded for the third qualifying round draw. Teams from the same association may not be drawn against each other.
• The final list of participating clubs will be published on UEFA.com ahead of the draws.
Media representatives wishing to attend the draws are requested to apply via email to firstname.lastname@example.org before 12.00CET on Thursday 17 July, mentioning 'Club draws' in the subject line.
Due to the high number of club representatives expected for the draws, only a restricted number of photographers and cameramen will be allowed to attend the proceedings in the auditorium, with access being granted on a first-come, first-served basis.
