How this season’s Europa League group stage draw will unfold

The ceremonu will be held at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco with representatives from all 48 clubs expected to be in attendance.

22 play-off winners, 10 teams defeated in the UEFA Champions League play-offs and the 16 clubs who qualified directly make up the four pots out of which 12 groups will be created.

Each side is awarded a coefficient to determine which pot they are placed into. From the group stages, the first two teams in each group and the eight third-placed teams from each Champions League group will qualify for the last-16 of the UEFA Europa League.

It is worth noting that no side can be drawn in the same group as a team from the same domestic league. Therefore, the likes of Everton and Arsenal will not face each other quite yet.

The event will take place at 13:00 GMT+1 at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. Join us later for live coverage of the draw.
