Martin Jol will face NSI Runavik of the Faroe Islands in his first game as Fulham manager.

Fulham qualified for the Europa League through the UEFA fair play rule. Fulham came fourth in the Fair Play table in England, behind Champions League-bound Manchester United and Chelsea, and Europa league-bound Tottenham.

While Fulham were pleased to be included in the European football tournament, the Cottagers face a very early start to their season because of it. They will play NSI Runavik in the first leg at home of June 30th, and away in the second leg on July 7th.


Faroe Islands are rated at 135 on the FIFA ranking, and Fulham will go into the match with the domestic side as overwhelming favourites to push through to the next round.

There are potentially two more qualifying rounds for Fulham, while other English entrants Stoke enter the competition in the third round, and Tottenham and Birmingham go straight into the play off stage.
