There is not long to go now before Tottenham discover who they will face in the Europa League Conference playoff round (Football London).

After missing out on the Europa League on the final day to West Ham United last season, Spurs will take part in the maiden season of UEFA’s brand new club competition. 

The second qualifying round finishes on Thursday evening and the draw for the third qualifying round was done last Monday.

Tottenham will then join the playoff round with some of the other high ranked sides from around Europe, including Jose Mourinho’s Roma, Rennes, and Union Berlin. 

The draw for the playoff round is set to take place on Monday 2nd August at 1 pm GMT and will be streamed live on UEFA.com.

However, this draw will only show the two potential opponents Tottenham could face in the play-off round, as it happens before the third-round matches.

When will the games be played?

Tottenham have already moved two of their first three Premier League games due to their participation in the Europa Conference League.

The first leg of the play-off round is due to be played on Thursday 19th August, which has pushed Spurs’ trip to Wolves to Sunday 22nd August. 

The return leg takes place a week later, on Thursday 26th August, which has pushed the visit of Watford to Sunday 29th August. 

Which other sides join at the play-off round?

Five teams eliminated from the Europa League 3rd qualifying round (champions path) will join on the Champions Path side of the Conference League. 

Three teams that went out of the main path of the Europa League third qualifying round will also join the Main Path of the play-off draw.

What side of the draw are Tottenham on?

Tottenham will be involved in the main path of the draw. As we previously mentioned, Roma, Rennes, and Union Berlin will be a part of the draw. Some of the other potential opponents for Spurs include Copenhagen, Basel and Gent.
