In a repeat of last month's FAW Welsh Cup final, TNS will host beaten finalists Cefn Druids at Park Hall on Saturday 23 June (kick-off 1.00pm) as the Ancients prepare for their first-ever appearance in Europe.
Three days later, Craig Harrison's men will face an Anglesey Island XI at School Lane, the home of Cemaes Bay, on Tuesday 26 June (kick-off 7.30pm).
It is hoped to arrange another friendly on Saturday 7 July, before the Shropshire Senior Cup first round tie at Bridgnorth Town on Tuesday 10 July (7.45pm).
Another friendly at home to Nuneaton Town follows on Friday 13 July at Park Hall (7.45pm).
The draw for the Champions League is on Monday 25 June, with the second qualifying round ties to be played on 17/18 July and 24/25 July.
