Wolverhampton Wanderers have this evening found out who they will face in their first European tie for over 39 years.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were recently drawn against the winners of Crusaders (NIR) / B36 Tórshavn (FRO) for the Europa League second qualifying round.
The two sides battled it out over two legs and Crusaders came out on top tonight, winning 5-2 on aggregate and set up meeting with the side that finish 7th in the Premier League table last season.
Fair to say the view for that game in the Faroe Islands was a misty one…
Wolves’ two legged tie is scheduled to be played on the 26th of July (home) and the 2nd of August (away) with a third qualifying round and a play-off round to follow ahead of the group stage.
The club sold 6,000 tickets for their Europa League opener on the first day of sales, offering reduced prices for the game, with adults paying £15 and under-17s just £5.
Crusaders play their league football in the NIFL Premiership, where they ended up in 4th place. They qualified for the European tournament via winning the Irish Cup.
The ground capacity of their Seaview home is 3,383 though average around 1,394.
This was their record in the Champions League and Europa League prior to tonight’s second leg clash in the Faroe Islands…
