Five British teams are in the hat, with Leicester, Arsenal, Tottenham, Celtic and Rangers all eager to see who they draw.

When is the Europa League group stage draw?

  • The draw will be held on Friday, October 2.
  • It takes place in Nyon, Switzerland at Uefa’s HQ – but is behind-closed-doors and without an audience due to the ongoing pandemic.
  • Things get underway at midday BST.

Which TV channel and live stream can I watch it on?

You can catch the draw in full on BT Sport 1 here in the UK.

BT customers can also download the app to stream wherever they are.

If you’re not a BT subscriber, Uefa will be streaming the draw live on their official website.

Here on SunSport we’ll also be running a dedicated live blog so you don’t miss any of the ties as they come out of the hat.
