The Europa League Round of 16 draw will take place at midday GMT tomorrow (Friday, February 27) at UEFA’s headquarters in Switzerland.
There is no seeding at this stage of the competition. Everton could be drawn against any of the 15 other remaining teams in the competition and could play at home or away in the first leg of the tie. For each tie, the first team drawn out of the pot will play at home on March 12, with the second leg taking place on March 19.
The Club anticipates that demand for away tickets will exceed the allocation (subject to security and stadium restrictions, the minimum allocation under UEFA rules is 5% of the stadium capacity). However, once the draw has been completed, the Club will immediately look to secure the maximum allocation.
As in previous rounds, away tickets will be made available to Season Ticket holders with Barclays Premier League away match credits. Should Evertonians be considering travelling away to watch the Blues in the next round, more than 3,000 fans have four or more away credits.
Information on how to apply for away tickets will be announced as soon as the allocation and price have been confirmed. This is likely to be early next week.
Official travel packages will be made available by the Club for the majority of potential opponents. Unfortunately, due to increasingly complex visa-application procedures, Thomas Cook will not operate a trip to Russia.
