Share this article

Peamount United have been drawn to play Serbian champions ZFK Spartak Subotica in their round 1 qualifier for the Women's Champions League.

The one-legged tie will be played on August 18.

Subotica have nine Serbian titles to their name, and reached the last-32 of last season's Champions League.

Should Peamount come through that test, they'll play either Dutch champions Twente, or their Georgian counterparts Tbilisi Nike on August 21.

Venues and kick-off times for all games are still to be confirmed.

"We're really excited to be going into the UEFA Women's Champions League for a second year in a row," said Peamount boss James O'Callaghan.

"It's a tough draw with a team that has dominated their League for the last 10 years.

"It's going to be a big challenge for us.

"Last year, we felt that we held our own [against Glasgow City] and can take great confidence from that. We feel that we have unfinished business in this competition.

"We really want to do it for ourselves and for the League, to show how good Peamount are and how good the football is in Ireland.

"We want to put on a performance so that people give us more respect, but we know that it is going to be a big challenge."
