Lottery method

champions pass

• The tie includes the eight teams that won the second qualifying round (Champions Pass) and the two teams that were eliminated in the first round of UEFA Champions League qualifying.

• From Group 1, the teams were tied and unseeded. The first ball drawn designated the home team for the first leg.

main path

• The tie includes nine new entrants and the winner of the 45 second qualifying round (main pass).

• Before the draw, the teams were divided into three groups of 8 teams (Groups 1 to 3) and three groups of 10 teams (Groups 4 to 6).

• In each of the six groups, teams were divided into an equal number of seeded and unseeded teams. Teams from the same association could not play against each other.

• If any club in the second qualifying round had a factor that allowed them to be seeded into the third qualifying round draw, the winner of that match was automatically seeded into the draw.

• In Groups 1-3, all clubs were randomly assigned numbers. 1 to 4 for seeded teams and 5 to 8 for unseeded teams. Two bowls were provided (one for seeded teams and one for unseeded teams).

• A ball was taken from each bowl, placed in an empty bowl, and shuffled. One of the two balls is randomly drawn and opened to reveal the number it contains. A second ball is drawn and opened to complete the pairing. The first ball drawn designated the home team. Results were applied to all three groups.

• The same procedure was applied to groups 4-6, with seeded teams numbered 1-5 and unseeded teams 6-10.

what happens next?

Draws will take place on 3/4 August and 9/10/11, with extra time and penalty shootouts after the second leg if necessary. The winner advances to the UEFA European Conference League playoffs.
