Everton must play Europa League qualifier

Everton must contest a two-legged play-off round to reach the new Europa League, with ties played on August 20 and 27.

There were suggestions that Everton might be accelerated straight into the group stages of the competition because last season's UEFA Cup winners, Shakhtar Donetsk, will not defend their title because they have qualified for next season's Champions League.

But Everton secretary, David Harrison, confirmed yesterday that the Goodison club have been informed they will play in the play-off round.
