UPC Arena (Graz) Stadium will be hosting on 25 July 2013, an UEFA Europa League qualification (2. round) between Puntigamer Sturm Graz and Breidablik Kopavogur. The match referee  will be Anastasios Sidiropoulos (GRE).
Puntigamer Sturm Graz has made a goalless draw on the first leg against the Icelandic club, so the Styrian team needs a home win if it wants to reach the 3rd qualification stage of the tournament. The first season game from Sturm Graz ended with a win 5:0 away at the Austrian ÖFB cup against Wiener Linien team. In the first round of the Austrian Bundesliga on Sunday, Sturm Graz made a 2:2 away draw against FC Wacker Innsbruck. Europa League leg against Breidablik will be the first Sturm Graz home game in the season of 2013/14. The last Europa League home leg at Graz ended with a 1:3 defeat against AEK Athens about 2 years ago.
Breidablik Kopavogur team will be the underdog at the second leg of the Europa League qualification, but it has got an advantage, as it will reach the next stage with a draw (a goalless draw would mean extra time).  The Austrian Bundesliga has started last weekend, and the national league of Iceland already started a view weeks ago. After 11 games, Breidablik team is on the 4th position with only three points handicap and one game in hand on the league leader FH Hafnafjördur. In the last round, Breidabil made a 2:1 away win against Þór Akureyri. Its last Europa League away leg ended with a goalless draw against Santa Coloma from Andorra.
