Macedonian clubs in Europe, summer 2015Macedonian clubs in Europe, summer 2015The list of the Champions League and Europa League participants is now complete, so the four Macedonian teams can get ready for the upcoming draw.

With the conclusion of the leagues in Denmark, Greece and Poland, as well as the Swiss Cup this past weekend, the club season in Europe is finally over. Therefore, the full list of participants in the Champions League and Europa League qualifications is now known.

The champion of the First League, Vardar, will start from the second qualifying round in the UEFA Champions League as an unseeded team. They will be drawn to play against one of the 17 seeded teams, all champions in their respective countries as well. Vardar will learn its opponent on June 22 when the draw gets made. The first match will then be on July 14 or 15, with the return leg a week later.

Vardar's opponent will be one of the following:

Romania
Steaua
Scotland
Celtic
Cyprus

Cup winners Rabotnichki, plus the third and fourth placed teams of Shkendija and Renova, will feature in the UEFA Europa League qualifications. All three clubs will start their journey in the first qualifying round. Thanks to Rabotnichki's club coefficient, they will be seeded. Meanwhile, Shkendija and Renova will be unseeded. As a rule at this stage of the draw, Rabotnichki (as a seeded team) will not be able to draw Shkendija or Renova (both unseeded). That is a rule by UEFA to prevent clubs from the same country from facing each other at this early stage of the qualification cycle. The draw for the Europa League will be held on June 22, while the first matches get underway on July 2.
