The 2023/24 UEFA Europa Conference League play-off round draw was held at the House of European Football in Nyon, Switzerland, on Monday.
Should Hamrun Spartans eliminate Hungarian giants Ferencvaros, they would be facing the loser of the UEFA Europa League two-legged tie between FK Žalgiris Vilnius of Lithuania and BK Häcken of Sweden. On the other hand, should Gzira United overcome the challenge offered by Viktoria Plzen of Czechia, they would be facing FC Tobol Kostanay of Kazakhstan or Irish side Derry City FC.
In the third qualifying round first leg, Hamrun host Ferencvaros at the National Stadium on Thursday while Gzira face Viktoria Plzen away from home. On Thursday 17, the Maroons host Viktoria Plzen at the National Stadium while Hamrun face Ferencvaros at the Groupama Arena.
Hamrun Spartans were the only team to reach the play-off round of a European competition but were eliminated by Partizan Belgrade in the UEFA Europa Conference League last season.
