Some wonderful person has created and is maintaining the 2023-24 UECL Wiki page, so I don't really need to track it here in quite so much detail. That said, I've updated the first round list above re seedings.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2023%E2%8 ... nce_League

edit: NB this does not seem to be updated to reflect Russia's ban from Euro competition. Also they've jumped the gun in assigning qualified teams, e.g. in Lithuania where 1 point seperates the 3 Euro qualifiers with 1 game to play. Whoever finishes second skips a round

Interesting Sean, so we will def be seeded in 2 rounds, maybe even 3 but 2 for sure. R1 should be fairly comfortable, you would hope, R2 we will be unlucky to get likes of Vitesse again who were unseeded, then if we get to R3, its only 2 more to the group.

Will be difficult, but draw depending, its not impossible.

I think Vitesse hadn't played in Europe in a few years so were a unseeded team. Djurgardens were 4th seeds in Shamrock Rovers group, but topped the group. They hadn't been involved in Europe in a few years either.

The Norwegian League season finished yesterday.

God Bless Bert, doing a better job of this than I could ever hope. (And certainly a better job than the Wikipedia editor above)

Love this guys work. All interlinked so any data uploaded automatically flows through the various pages.

Interesting looking at the Swedish league which we all know is fairly strong. Champions BK Hacken have a coefficient of 4.75 which will leave them unseeded in QR1. Could well be in Rovers Geo group.

Sean, do you know why LOI is ranked 40 on this but 36 on other sites?

Good to see we are def 8.5, but as pointed out by a few before, it didn't do us any favours when Vitesse were pitched against us as the unseded side !

40 is what the LOI was ranked previously. Shamrock Rovers getting into the group stages and Pats and Sligo getting to Rd 3 meant there was a jump to 36.

Yeh so the country ranking lags a year behind, i.e. Rovers will see the benefit of their 2022 Euro run in 2023, but Ireland will only see it in 2024. This is basically because countries have to know their ranking before their domestic season starts so they know how many spots they have, etc.

Interesting side note on this.... last year Ireland were ranked 39 and were one of the countries who cup winners (Pats) were moved up to round 2 when the Russian clubs were removed. This season we're down to 40 and as a direct result Derry have missed out by one place on being moved straight into round 2. Derry might not be seeded in round 1 so it won't necessarily be straight-forward for them.
