IF Bala Town can defeat Sligo Rovers in Europe, they will go on to meet Scottish opponents.

The Lakesiders are preparing for another season in European competition and they will play in the UEFA Europa Conference League next month.

Should they reach the second qualifying round of the competition, Colin Caton's charges will come up against Scottish Premiership outfit Motherwell.

Motherwell were one of five potential opponents for Bala, who could also have been drawn against AZ Alkmaar (Netherlands), Molde FK (Norway), Brøndby IF (Denmark) and either FC DAC 1904 Dunajska Streda (Slovakia) or Cliftonville (Northern Ireland).

The second qualifying round gets underway on July 21 with the first leg at Motherwell's Fir Park, while the second leg will be played on July 28. 

If Bala are to be involved in the tie, they'll need to get the better of League of Ireland's Sligo Rovers in the first qualifying round.

As things stand, Sligo are fifth in the Premier Division of the League of Ireland, with six wins and six defeats in their 19 matches.

Last time out, they finished third in the table to secure European qualification.

Bala Town are preparing for their eighth season of European competition and their Europa Conference League campaign last season ended with a 2-0 aggregate loss to Northern Ireland's Larne in the first qualifying round.

The Lakesiders will host the first leg at Park Hall on July 7.

Bala will then travel to West Ireland to face The Bit O'Reds at The Showgrounds on July 14 for the return leg.

These dates are subject to change.
