The road to Prague begins with the Europa Conference League group stage draw.

BT Sport will show live coverage of the draw as David Moyes’ West Ham discover their opponents for the group stages beginning on Thursday 8 September.

The Hammers are the only English club in the hat after beating Danish side Viborg 6-1 on aggregate in their qualifying play-off, and have been joined by Scottish Premiership side Hearts, who lost 3-1 to Zurich on aggregate in their Europa League play-off. 

Roma were the inaugural Europa Conference League champions last season, beating Feyenoord in the final. That means Jose Mourinho’s side will play in the Europe League this season.

Here, we round up all the key information including how to watch the draw on BT Sport.
