Hibernian can confirm the Club has received clarification from UEFA, this morning, concerning the Europa League second round qualifying ties in July (18 and 25).

The Club will face either Drogheda United or Malmo (first qualifying round tie played over two legs on July 4 and 11).

The order of the second round ties is dependent on a number of factors.

Drogheda United will play their home leg tie against Malmo at the Tallaght Stadium in Dublin on Thursday 4 July, while at the same time fellow Dublin club, St Patrick's Athletic will be away to Vilnius on the same date. The second legs taking place on Thursday 11 July.

Drogheda and St Patrick's are unable to play in Dublin on the same night and in the second qualifying round both have been handed potential first legs at home, so a change to the draw would be required.

If St Patrick's do not progress, but Drogheda United win the tie against Malmo we would play Drogheda at the Tallaght Stadium, Dublin on the original draw date of Thursday 18 July.

Should both Irish clubs progress through to the second qualifying round then Hibernian would face Drogheda United at Easter Road in the first leg on Thursday 18 July with the second leg at the Tallaght Stadium, Dublin on Thursday 25 July.

Should Malmo progress through to the second qualifying round then we will travel to Malmo, Sweden for the first leg on Thursday 18 July with the second leg at Easter Road staged on Thursday 25 July.

Ticket info for the second qualifying round will be announced on the official website in due course.
