Slaven Bilic will take charge of his first competitive West Ham game against Andorran side Lusitans in the first qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League.
Former Besiktas boss Bilic was confirmed as Sam Allardyce’s successor earlier this month and will lead West Ham into Europe after the club secured its place via the Fair Play League.
When the draw took place in Nyon on Monday, West Ham were handed a first-leg trip to Andorra on July 2, with the return leg at Upton Park a week later.
Eredivisie side Go Ahead Eagles also secured their place via the Fair Play ranking and will face Hungarian outfit Ferencvarosi, while former UEFA Cup semi-finalists Brondby take on Juvenes-Dogana of San Marino.
The Scottish pair of Aberdeen and St Johnstone will meet Shkendija and Alashkert respectively, with the likes of Trabzonspor, Copenhagen and PAOK coming in at the second qualifying round.
