Glasgow City and UWIC have been handed challenging draws in the group stage of the UEFA Women's Champions League for the 2012-13 season.
The draw was made in Nyon today and Glasgow City, who reached the last sixteen last season, will have to travel to Finland for their group.
City - top seeded in the draw - must play host side PK-35 Vantaa as well as WFC Osijek of Croatia and Moldovan title winners FC Noroc Nimoreni.
Meanwhile UWIC, who are only the third team to represent Wales in the competition, face a trip to Bosnia-Herzegovina where they take on WFC SFK 2000 Sarajevo, ASA Tel-Aviv FC from Israel and Republic of Ireland Champions Peamount United.
Glentoran Belfast Utd, from Northern Ireland, have been drawn in the same group as Portuguese side SU 1 Dezembro, Olimpia Cluj-Napoca of Romania and Birkirkara FC, who will host the matches in Malta.
The three British sides did manage to avoid Swiss Champions FC Zurich Frauen, whose team includes former UEFA Women's Cup winners Inke Grings and Sonja Fuss.
The groups will be played between 11 and 16 August and only the winners are guaranteed a place in the last 32, which will include the two English representatives, Arsenal and Birmingham City.
