Young Boys in Champions League

We have been drawn against Young Boys of Switzerland in the play-off for the UEFA Champions League.

We will travel to the Stade de Suisse in Bern for the first leg on Tuesday, August 17 before the home leg at White Hart Lane on Wednesday, August 25.

Dates for both legs will be confirmed soon.

Remember, fans are advised against booking independent travel arrangements until we know full ticket information for the away leg.

A FEW FACTS ON YOUNG BOYS, SWITZERLAND...

Young Boys finished second in the Swiss Super League last season and caused somewhat of a shock by beating Turkish side Fenerbache in the third qualifying round.

They progressed to the play-offs thanks to a 1-0 win in Turkey on Wednesday.

Managed by Bosnian Vladimir Petkovic, Young Boys, based in Bern, kicked-off their domestic season on July 17. They've managed two points from three games so far.

We've only had one previous meeting against Swiss opposition and that came in the UEFA Cup in 1973-74 and a 9-1 aggregate win against Grasshoppers.
