How the European Conference League Qualifier Third Round Draw Works

The draw for the 3rd Qualifying Round will take place before the results of the 2nd Qualifying Round are completed. In other words, the matchup will be drawn as a placeholder for the final qualifier.

For this reason, each matchup is designated to produce either a seeded or an unseeded team, and whoever emerges from that matchup is considered one or the other, regardless of the winner. The seeding is done by his UEFA his club factor of the top teams in the matchup, which is theoretically designed to get every top team advancing. Therefore, in the event of an upset in the second qualifying round, lower-ranked teams may be seeded higher than higher-ranked teams.

In the lottery Seeded teams will be drawn against unseeded teams Create potential matchups for the 3rd Qualifying Round on both Champions Pass and Main Pass.

There are few teams from the third qualifying round, and their presence is guaranteed regardless of the result of the second qualifying round. These teams include Champions Pass FK RFS and Shakhtior Soligorsk, Main Pass Lugano, Zorya Luhansk, Hajduk Split, Dundee United, Anderlecht, Wolfsberger, Gilles Vicente, Panathinaikos and FC Twente.

The winner of the third qualifying round advances to the Playoff Round, the final stage of the European Conference League before the Group Stage. He has only six group stage places reserved for qualifiers from these early competitions.
