Third qualifying round: August 8 & 15

Play-offs: August 22 & 29 

Will Kilmarnock be at home for the first or second leg?

There is ultimately no way of determining this before the draw.

While unseeded for the draw, with UEFA's qualifying rounds format, it is 50-50 when the home and away ties will be, although, the team picked out of the hat first in each fixture is likely to be the home side for the first leg.

UEFA will confirm fixture details shortly after the completion of the second qualifying round draw.

What happens if Kilmarnock lose their second qualifying round tie?

If Killie fail to win against their opponents over two legs, then it's not bad news.

In fact, Derek McInnes' side is very much in a win-win situation where if they progress, great, but if not, then they have the fallback of the Europa Conference League.

They will drop into the third qualifying round of that tournament should they be defeated in the Europa League.

So, regardless of the outcome, Killie will be involved in the third qualifying round draw on Monday, July 22, whether it be in the Europa League or Europa Conference League.
