Falkirk are likely to begin life under John McGlynn in League 1 at home after starting off the last campaign away to Cove Rangers in Aberdeen, where they drew 2-2.

Stenhousemuir, on the other hand, are likely to face a trip to the likes of League 2 newcomers Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic after kicking off last season with a 1-0 home loss to Stirling Albion.

The Bairns will have four derby ties to look forward to, with Dunfermline Athletic set for life in the third tier under new boss James McPake after they lost in their relegation play-off final to Queen’s Park.

The eight group winners and three best runners-up will join European qualifiers Celtic, Rangers, Heart of Midlothian, Dundee United and Motherwell in the last 16 of the competition.
