Scotland will find out their 2019 World Cup Qualifying opponents on Tuesday, 25 April at 12.30pm (UK time) when the draw is made in Switzerland.


Scotland have been seeded in Pot B having qualified for Euro 2017 which kicks off in the Netherlands this summer.


The side will be led by Shelley Kerr who takes over from Anna Signeul in August and will aim to take Scotland to their first World Cup which will be held in France in the summer of 2019.


Seven groups will be formed of five teams apiece for qualifying and matches will be played home and away from 11 September 2017 to 4 September 2018.


The seven group winners will qualify to join France in the finals and the four runners-up with the best records against the sides first, third and fourth in their groups will advance to the play-offs.


The play-offs will consist of two rounds of two-legged knockout ties in October and November 2018 to decide Europe's last qualifier.


Ahead of the draw the Scotland head coach elect Shelley Kerr said: “It will be a great experience to be over in Switzerland for the draw and it’s exciting as there are some brilliant teams in there.


“All we’re looking for is a kind draw as it’s extremely difficult to qualify for a World Cup due to the format with only the top team going through automatically but it will be a challenge we’ll relish.”
