Hull City will face either FK AS Trencin or FK Vojvodina in the third qualifying round of the Europa League.

Hull City will face Slovakian or Serbian opposition when they make their debut in the Europa League later this month.

The Tigers have qualified for Europe for the first time in their history after finishing as runners-up in the FA Cup, and the draw has paired Steve Bruce's side with either FK AS Trencin or FK Vojvodina in the third qualifying round.

It appears likely that Hull will face a tie with the Slovakian outfit after Trencin, who were eliminated at this stage last season, opened up a 4-0 advantage on aggregate in the first leg last night.

Hull will play the opening leg away from home on Thursday, July 31, with the second leg being played at the KC Stadium a week later.
