The Europa League has unfairly been given a negative reputation over the last few years but this season there are some real giants competing.
And one day after watching the group stages of Europe's premier competition, the Champions League, get drawn, Manchester United, Ajax, Roma and 45 other teams have all found out who they will be facing in this year's tournament.
You can scroll down to see the full draw but there are certainly a few matchups which stand out above the rest.
Jose Mourinho's Man United are participating in the group stages for the first time but will feel excited at the prospect of playing Robin van Persie's Fenerbahce, Feyenoord and Zorya Luhansk from Ukraine.
The Premier League's other representative, Southampton, automatically qualified for the competition after finishing sixth last year.
The Saints were seeded in Pot 3 so were always likely to be dealt a tough draw and it has proven to be the case as they will face Frank de Boer's Inter Milan, Sparta Prague and Hapoel Beer-Sheva in Group K.
Dundalk FC from the League of Ireland Premier Division were drawn against Zenit St Petersburg, AZ Alkmaar and Maccabi Tel-Aviv in their first appearance in the group stage of a major European tournament.
