Not wanting to temp fate :arrowhead: , but presuming we get into the UEFA Cup when does the first round start and when would we know who we draw against

If we get the Intertoto spot I am going to try and buy tickets since I will be over there when it takes place. I'd rather qualify for Europe without having to go to the intertoto though. Is the intertoto spot 7th then?

Would we have to play any qualifers like we did for the Chams league as we was not seeded as not much experience in Europe?

 

5th is automatic and 6th is qualifiying normally so I dont know if we will have 2 automatic or 2 qualifying out of the 3 places. How does the cup entry normally work??

The draw for the first round proper is towards the end of August, a few days after the second qualifying round is finished. This season they held the draw on August 25. The two legs of the first round (where the 5-6-7 placed EPL teams would jump in the fray) are played in September. 80 teams go into the first round, and nobody gets a free pass to the group stages - the 40 teams with the most ranking points are "seeded" into one group and randomly draw opponents from the other 40 "unseeded" teams.

Intertoto is 8th this year (or whoever is the highest finisher below 7th who entered it); 5th-7th are guaranteed UEFA Cup spots. As long as we finish 5, 6, or 7, we'll go straight into September's first round. If we ended up playing Intertoto we'd have to play that first and then (assuming a win) we'd be entered into the second qualifying round of the UEFA Cup in August. So we'd have to go through two steps more to get to the first round than we would if we simply finish 7th or better.

Any chances of getting Dynamo Buchesrest :o

 

They're currently top of the league in Romania, ten points clear with eight games left...only lost one all season and conceded fifteen goals in twenty-six games...good form!

 

Last year Romania didn't have a direct entry into the group stage of the Champions League so I'd think the same would apply this, which would mean they'd go in at the third qualifying round. If they lost that then they'd be in UEFA but I'm certain that they'd be in the top forty seeds (along with us) so in answer to the question Zed....no. Phew B) .
