For a Faroese team, this is the biggest success in the 30-year history of club and North Island football. By reaching the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League, the team has secured participation in at least the group stage of the Conference League.

HB Torshavn last reached the finals of the defunct European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1993.

For Klaksvik, the European Cup’s qualifying journey for the Europa League continues. At least the group stage of the Conference League can no longer be taken from the Faroe Islands.
