From uefa.com:

Intertoto Cup draw on Monday

The draw for the 2006 UEFA Intertoto Cup will take place from 12.00CET on Monday at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

Format change

Last September, the UEFA Executive Committee approved a change in format for the summer competition, which dates back to 1995. From this year, three rounds will be played, instead of five. The eleven victorious teams from the UEFA Intertoto Cup third round will go through to the second qualifying round of the 2006/07 UEFA Cup.

No Portuguese

The 49 participating associations will each have one entrant, with Portugal not choosing to take part and no side involved from either Liechtenstein or San Marino. As a result of the Portuguese absence and given the rankings list below, Belgium will enter in the third round and Hungary in the second round. The identity of the clubs involved will not be confirmed until the end of the 2005/06 season.

Geographical draw

Monday's midday ceremony will see the matches decided for all three rounds, with the countries divided on a geographical basis for draw purposes. The first round, which will be played over two legs on 17/18 and 24/25 June, features 26 nations. Another 13 countries will join in the second round, to take place on 1/2 and 8/9 July, before the eight seeded contestants come in for the decisive third round on 15/16 and 22 July.

Entry 3rd: Spain, England, Italy, France, Germany, Netherlands, Greece, Belgium
Entry 2nd: Scotland, Turkey, Czech Republic, Russia, Austria, Ukraine, Israel, Serbia & Montenegro, Poland, Switzerland, Norway, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Hungary
Entry 1st: Romania, Sweden, Slovakia, Slovenia, Cyprus, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Latvia, Finland, Moldova, Georgia, Lithuania, Iceland, F.Y.R. Macedonia, Republic of Ireland, Belarus, Armenia, Malta, Albania, Estonia, Northern Ireland, Wales, Luxembourg, Azerbaijan, Faroe Islands, Kazakhstan, Andorra

I will be cheering for whoever the Romanian team is. :thumbsup: :star:
Poli Timisoara, Rapid, National, Sportul, CFR Cluj. I have no preference.
Well, it would be nice to see Cluj make another run at it :flirt: , but other than that I have no real preference.

(I do prefer Dinamo over Steaua, but neither of these teams will be in Intertoto so that point doesn't really matter.) :tongue:

The thing is that if Rapid finishes 4th, Intertoto is not a shame, Juventus played it and with big players on the field they didnt beat Ceahlaul Piatra Neamt ( only 0-0 on Delle Alpi and 1-1 in Romania ) but they won it, and they have +1 title in theyre museum even though only teoreticly.
I dont see the shame in it, Rapid had to start in round 1 prel. UEFA Cup vs. St. Julla witch seems shamefull for a team who beat Feyenoord,Shahtior,Rennes,Paok,Hertha or Hamburger SV.

It seems only National and Arges have applied.
I think National is very good.
Arges only mediocre, they might just play the last round.
Who applied from Bulgaria and Italy?
