Wexford Youths Women will host one of the Uefa Women’s Champions League qualifying groups which takes place in August.

The group will be played between August 23 and August 28 in both Ferrycarrig park and the RSC in Waterford.

In their only previous appearance in the competition last season, Youths were eliminated at the qualifying stage despite defeating Gintra Universitetas 1-0 in their opening fixture and Cardiff Met 5-1 in their final game in Poland.

The Wexford outfit will be hoping that they will be able to capitalise on the home advantage.

The draw for the qualifying phase is due to take place on June 24 in Nyon, Switzerland.
