Lincoln Red Imps FC are Gibraltar’s representatives in the Preliminary Qualifying Round of the UEFA Champions League. This stage of the tournament is a four team knockout competition. One leg semi finals and then a final. This year the tournament is being held in Prishtina, Kosovo. Lincoln Red Imps have drawn the toughest of the semi finals – they will face the hosts, the champions of Kosovo Feronikeli, at 20:45 tomorrow evening, Tuesday 25/06/2019. Should they win, in the final, they will face the winners of the other semi final between Tre Penne of San Marino and FC Santa Coloma of Andorra. Should they lose in the semi final, they still have European football to play, they would drop into the Europa League where they would face either Ararat Armenia or AIK of Sweden in the second qualifying round.
The Europa League Qualifiers have thrown up different opponents for Europa FC & St Joseph’s FC.
Gibtelecom Cup Winners, Europa FC have drawn Sant Julia of Andorra. They play their first leg, away in Andorra on Thursday 27th June at 8pm. Given Europa FC’s recent history in European competition, where they have had to face some tough opponents, this is a tie they will be relishing. With the first leg away from home they will be intent on bringing a result back to the Victoria Stadium for the second leg of the tie.
