Everton To Face Ružomberok Or Brann

Everton will face Ružomberok of Slovakia or SK Brann of Norway in the Europa League third qualifying round.

The Blues will be at home in the first leg on Thursday 27 July, with the return fixture scheduled for Thursday 3 August.

Ružomberok and Brann play the second leg of their second round qualifier next Thursday, 20 July, at which point the Blues’ opponents will be confirmed.

Brann currently lead 1-0 after the first leg in Slovakia.
 
Ružomberok, who won their only Slovakian Super Liga title in 2006, finished third last season behind champions Žilina and Slovan Bratislava.

Brann, meanwhile, finished second in the Norwegian Eliteserien in 2016 and occupy the same position during the current campaign with 16 games played. They have been Norwegian champions on three occasions, most recently in 2007. 

The following season Everton and Brann clashed in the round of 32 of the UEFA Cup, with the Blues winning 8-1 on aggregate. We have never previously met Ružomberok.

Following the conclusion of the second qualifying round tie between Ružomberok and Brann, the Club will immediately begin communication with our opponents and ticket details for the fixtures will be confirmed on evertonfc.com at the earliest opportunity.

Tickets for the home leg (27 July, 8.05pm) will be on sale to Season Ticket holders from Tuesday 18 July. For more information, click here.

Please note, there will be no official travel packages for the qualifying rounds of the 2017/18 Europa League. The Club will advise whether official packages will be available for the potential play-off and group stages of the competition in due course.
