TNS will take on Europa FC in the Champions League first round qualifying.

The Welsh champions were drawn at home for the first leg, with the fixture set to take place on the 27/28 June.

The return leg is set to go ahead on 4/5 July.

Europa FC finished top of the Gibraltar Premier Division, claiming the title by a single point over Lincoln Red Imps.

They won all but three of their league games last season, winning 24 times on their way to the title.

Should TNS clear the first round of qualifying, they will then face HNK Rijeka, who finished top of the Croatian HNL table - two points ahead of Dinamo Zagreb.

Second round fixtures will also be held over two legs - with the games taking place July 11/12 and 18/19.

Winners of the second-round will head into the third round of qualifying for Europe's premier cup competition.
