Fulham to meet Faroe Islands club NSI Runavik in Europa League

Fulham will take on Faroe Islands club NSI Runavik in the opening round of next season's Europa League qualifying.

The Cottagers are in the competition courtesy of the UEFA Fair Play League and have been drawn against the Faroe Islands Premier League in the first of three qualifying rounds.

Fulham meet Runavik at Craven Cottage on Thursday June 30 before travelling to the Faroese outfit's home ground for the return leg on Thursday July 7.

The other English clubs in Europe's second tier club competition, Stoke City, Tottenham and Birmingham City, all enter a little later than Fulham with the Potters coming in during the third round whilst Spurs and Birmingham come in for the play-off round.

Last season, Runavik finished third in their league but they have lost all six Europa League matches they have contested.
