Now it has been confirmed that we`re to play FK Vetra in our Europa League qualification tie, we thought we`d try and uncover a few facts about the club.

FK Vetra, a Lithuanian team, play in the capital city of Vilnius.

They have a relatively short history having only been formed in 1996.

They compete in the top flight in Lithuanian football, the aptly named A Lyga, in which they came third last season.

Since being formed in 1996, the club has moved form its original location in Rūdi?kės, a settlement in Vilnius to the capital itself, into a brand new stadium, the Vetra Stadium.

The stadium has a capcity of 5,900.

Their chairman is called Romas Sta?auskas and their manager is Virginijus Liubsys.

Vetra have faced English opposition before, losing to Blackburn in the Intertoto cup in 2007
