The UEFA Europa League Third Qualifying Round will take place on Sept. 24th

Sporting CP will kick off their 2020/21 UEFA Europa League campaign on September 24th, playing either Viking FC or Aberdeen FC in the Third Qualifying Round of the continental competition. In a change of format this year, the match will be held over a single leg at the Estádio José Alvalade.

Os Leões will find out which of the two teams they will face one week prior, when the Norwegian and Scottish sides play one another in the Second Qualifying Round on September 17th.

Sporting CP have already played against Viking FK in the European tournament, in its previous incarnation as the UEFA Cup: In 1999/2000, the team lost the first leg 3-0, before winning 1-0 at Alvalade through an Ayew goal.
