Uefa Europa League Draw: Hibs v NSI Runavik

Hibs have this afternoon been drawn to face NSI Runavik of the Faroe Islands in the Uefa Europa League 1st Qualifying Round.

The draw made in Nion, Switzerland, seen the Hibees in pot 9, and they were duly picked out first.

Easter Road will host the first leg on on July 12th, with the away leg on July 19th, but this is apparently subject to change, so keep your eyes peeled.

Runavik are currently 3rd in their league and their Við Løkin stadium only has a capacity of 2,000.

However, they play any European games at Tórsvøllur Stadium (Capacity: 6,000) in the capital Tórshavn or the Svangaskarð Stadium (Capacity: 6,000), home of B68 Toftir.

The draw for the 2nd round takes place later, and the Hibees will find out who they will face if they get past Runavik.
