Sligo Rovers will get their UEFA Europa Conference League qualifying campaign underway this evening.

The Bit O’ Red travel to Wales to take on Cymru Premier runners-up Bala Town in the first round (first leg) of qualification. The game takes place in Oswestry, which is a small town on the England and Wales border and home of The New Saints FC.

Kick-off is at 7pm.

Rovers qualified for the competition after a third place finish in 2021, the second consecutive season the club have reached this stage. There was disappointment last year with defeat to FH Hafnarfjordur of Iceland, losing 3-1 on aggregate.

Rovers currently sit fifth in the League of Ireland Premier Division.
