St Johnstone might have to wait 10 days before discovering their Europa League opponents after being drawn against a Turkish side in the second qualifying round.
Unseeded Saints were picked out of the hat against Eskisehirspor, but their opponents' place in the tournament is dependent on Besiktas losing their Court of Arbitration appeal against expulsion by UEFA.
However, that case is not due to be heard until July 5 so Saints manager Steve Lomas will have to prepare for the possibility of facing one of two teams.
The other is Bursaspor, who themselves won an appeal against expulsion at CAS last week and would drop into the second qualifying round if Besiktas are also successful in challenging their punishment for alleged financial mismanagement.
Eskisehirspor themselves have been embroiled in financial problems and were recently ordered to pay Kris Boyd several million pounds for breach of contract over unpaid wages during his short spell in Turkey.
There were also conflicting reports from the club over the schedule of matches with the first leg on July 19 and the second seven days later.
Saints said on their official Twitter account tonight: "Europa Cup home/away legs and dates still to be totally confirmed lots of conflicting info out there so sorry again for misunderstanding."
It was a day of utter confusion for Saints fans with UEFA's website not carrying a live stream of the draw as usual and information trickling out of Nyon.
Manager Steve Lomas admitted the uncertainty was not ideal but he is excited about the prospect of facing strong opposition.
Lomas said: "Whatever the draw is going to be, we are back in Europe and it's something for the fans to enjoy.
"It looks like we're going to Turkey, we just don't know for sure who we are playing.
"It's not going to be easy to prepare but we will get on with it and look forward to it. It's great for the club and it's great for the supporters."
Saints' preparations for the tie have also been hit by financial mismanagement closer to home with the impact of Rangers' collapse sparking financial uncertainty for all SPL clubs.
Lomas, who is still looking to complete the bulk of his summer signings, have brought in the likes of Gregory Tade from Inverness.
"We're still hoping to get another five or six in," said Lomas after his first pre-season training session.
"But obviously everything has slowed up as a lot of attention has been on the Rangers scenario.
"We just want to get a few more players in as we lost quite a few starters."
