Vital Manchester City understands the draw for the UEFA Cup first qualifying round is set to take place in Nyon on June 27.

When the draw is made, City will face teams from countries such as Lithuania, Estonia, Iceland, Luxembourg, Faroe Islands, the Republic of Ireland, Wales or Northern Ireland.

Teams that City could face are now confirmed as Flora Tallin and TVMK Tallin from Estonia, Akranes from Iceland, EB Streymour or B36 Torshavn from the Faro Islands, Vetra Vilnius from Lithuania and finally Racing FC from Luxembourg or that country’s recently crowned cup winners CS Grevenmacher.

Should City win through their first hurdle they then join the likes of CSKA Moscow, Besiktas, AEK Athens and Scotland’s Queen of the South in the second qualifying round.
