The Macedonian representative, Dragon, was drawn to face the champions of Greece, Bulgaria and Northern Ireland.

32 teams were divided into eight groups of 4 in the first qualifying round of the 2015-16 UEFA Women's Champions League. Among them was Macedonian champions Dragon who found itself in Group 2.

Dragon will make its Champions league debut against PAOK, NSA Vasil Levski and Glentoran. The games will be played from August 11-16 as one-venue mini-tournaments with the host being Northern Ireland.

It's far from an easy group for Dragon. PAOK is a well known opponent in Macedonia as they faced former champion Nashe Taksi two times (2011 and 2012), recording one win and one defeat. They have won 10 league trophies and 4 cup trophies in Greece.

NSA Vasil Levski has never faced a Macedonian team, but after 5 years of being eliminated in the first qualifying round, they reached the Round of 32 last summer. They have been unstoppable in the Bulgarian league, winning the last 11 editions.

Meanwhile, Glentoran is a 7 time champion from Northern Ireland, but they have never passed the first qualifying round of the Champions League.
