Dundalk are to travel north to Iceland, and will meet FH Hafnarfjördur in the Champions League Second Qualifying Round.

Stephen Kenny's side will play their first leg in Oriel Park on June 12th or 13th, before the second leg in Iceland a week later.

The Louth side avoided Celtic, and last year's opponents BATE Borisiov. Of the six teams, Dundalk could have been drawn against, the Icelandic champions gives Dundalk the best chance of progression.

A win in the Second Qualifying Round would guarantee the back-to-back League champions at least two more ties this summer.

Brendan Rodgers will begin life as Celtic manager will a Second Round tie against either Flora Tallinn from Estonia or Gibraltar's Lincoln.

Irish League champions Crusaders will meet Denmark's FC København.
