The Hammers are aiming for another continental run after reaching the 2021-22 Europa League semi-finals. West Ham will make their Europa Conference League debut on Thursday when they meet Viborg in the first leg of the qualifying play-offs at the London Stadium.
The final matchday defeat to Brighton in the Premier League left David Moyes’ side without a direct spot in the competition’s group stage, while the Danish side made it through the first qualifying rounds before reaching the playoffs this year. West Ham reached the Europa League semi-finals last season but did not start well domestically in 2022/23, losing 2-0 at home to Premier League champions Manchester City before being beaten by Nottingham Forest.
Viborg is still clearly underdogs in this draw but will be looking to gain momentum after five wins in their last six games in all competitions, including triumphs over Suduva and BS6 Torshavn in Conference League qualifiers.

Viborg manager Jacob Friis took the opportunity to rest his key players for the clash after taking a 2-0 lead against Silkeborg, including Jay-Roy Grot.
Grot and Jan Zamburek played for Leeds and Brentford respectively early in their careers, though the latter is unlikely to start against the Hammers.
