The seedings have been confirmed for today's UEFA Europa League play-off draw – to be streamed live on UEFA.com from 13.00CET – when 62 teams will learn their fate.
Former major UEFA club competition winners Tottenham Hotspur FC, FC Dynamo Kyiv, ACF Fiorentina, Feyenoord, Eintracht Frankfurt and Sevilla FC are among 62 clubs that will learn their fate from 13.00CET when the draw is made for the UEFA Europa League play-off round.
Tottenham, Dynamo, Fiorentina and Feyenoord all make their bows in the competition at this stage, when 18 teams enter the fray. Sevilla were one of the 29 sides that advanced from the third qualifying round on Thursday, while a further 15 transfer after losing in the same stage of the UEFA Champions League.
The teams will be divided into six groups for the draw at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland – five of ten teams and one of 12. Within all groups an equal number of sides are seeded and unseeded in accordance with the club rankings established at the beginning of the season.
A ball will be taken from each of the bowls containing seeded and unseeded teams and placed in a large empty bowl in the middle, where they will be shuffled. The first club drawn will play their first match at home and sides from the same association cannot be drawn against each other.
The fixtures will be contested over two legs on 22 and 29 August, with the winners joining seven automatic qualifiers in the group stage draw in Monaco on 30 August.
