FC Sarajevo to play against Celtic in the first qualifying Round of the Champions League

Celtic have been drawn against Bosnian champions FK Sarajevo in the first qualifying round of the Champions League.

The Hoops were seeded for the draw which was sorted into groups, so there was only a limited pool of teams they could face.

Today the draw was made at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, with Neil Lennon’s side drawn against Sarajevo.

The first leg will be at Celtic Park on July 9 or 10, barring any changes, with the second leg in Bosnia on either July 16 or 17.

Sarajevo play at the 34,000-seater Asim Ferhatovic-Hase Stadium, which is named for club legend Asim Ferhatovic.

They are champions of the Bosnian league.
