Monday, June 21, 2010, 14:01

The Europa League and Champions League first qualifying round draws were carried out earlier today at 13:00hrs in Nyon with Sliema Wanderers FC drawn to  face Croatian HNK Sibenik on the 1st and 8th of July 2010 whilst Birkirkara FC will face FC Santa Coloma of Andorra.

Birkirkara FC will play their first leg on the 29th or 30th of June and the second leg on July 6th or 7th. Both teams have strengthened with Sliema Wanderers FC apparently signing a Portuguese foreigner upfront who is  highly rated whilst Birkirkara FC positively closed their negotiations with a talented Italian attacking midfielder with a lot of potential.

Valletta FC will be involved in the draws at a later stage as they qualify directly in the second qualifying round being winners of the local cup.

Valletta FC will face the winners of match 23 which is between the FC Shakhtyor Karagandy from Kazakhstan and KS Ruch Chorzów from Poland.
