THERE’s a host of big names going head-to-head in this year’s Europa League.

Last year’s beaten finalists Arsenal are joined by Manchester United, whilst Sevilla, AC Milan, Lazio and Roma are all set to battle it out for a place in May’s Gdansk finale.

When is the Europa League group stage draw?

THIS year’s group stage draw will be held in the lavish surroundings of Monaco.

Expect bigwigs from some of Europe’s top clubs to be in attendance, as well as ex-winners and current managers.

It will be held on Friday, August 30.

Uefa are yet to confirm a start time, but last year proceedings got underway at 5pm BST.

Which TV channel and live stream can I watch it on?

THERE are plenty of ways to catch the draw on numerous devices.

If you want to watch on TV, BT Sport will be broadcasting proceedings from the south of France.

BT subscribers can live stream by downloading the BT Sport app on their mobile, tablet or PC.

Whilst everyone else can head to Uefa’s official website, where there will be an official HD stream starting moments before the draw begins.
