It's not often that Faroese teams are with at real chance of qualifying for the next round in a European competition, but that is the situation B36 Tórshavn have put themselves in, after they got a deserved 1-1 draw in Vestmannaeyar against the Icelandic side ÍBV on Thursday.

B36 went in front after 7 minutes, thanks to a Bergur Midjord goal. But ÍBV leveled the score midway into the first half with a goal from Pétur Óskar Sigurðsson.

The return match will be played in Tórshavn on July 17, 2005.

Of Faroese clubs, only HB Tórshavn have ever qualified for the next round in a European competition. That happened in 1993, when they had lost 1-0 away to RAF Latvia, but the Latvian never showed up in the Faroes for the return match and therefore HB Tórshavn were awarded a 3-0 win by UEFA. - If HB would have made it by playing, we will never know…
