Cork City under-19s have been drawn against HJK Helsinki in the First Round of the UEFA Youth League.


City, who will play through the knockout-style 'Champions Route' rather than the group stages, are the first Irish side to compete in the tournament, which was recently expanded to 64 teams.


The Leesiders have been crowned champions of the League of Ireland under-19 league in four or the five seasons since it was launched in 2011.


Should City defeat HJK, they will face the winner of the tie between AS Roma of Italy and APOEL Nicosia of Cyprus.


The First Round games are scheduled to be played on September 28th and October 19th, with City away for the first leg.


Second Round games will take place on November 2nd and 23rd, with the winner of the Roma/APOEL tie to play at home first.
