Stuart McCall has urged Motherwell fans to sell out Fir Park for their Champions League qualifier against Panathinaikos.
The Steelmen, involved in Europe's elite club competition for the first time, were drawn at their 13,700-seater home in the first leg of the third qualifying round against the Greek side with the return game in Athens.
And manager McCall is hoping the unique occasion will entice the Motherwell faithful to snap up every ticket for the match which takes place on July 31 or August 1, telling Press Association Sport: "There is no reason why we can't get this place filled now. It would be magic to come out here for our first competitive game this season and see it full."
He added: "That would give everyone a lift and I think the players will deserve that for their efforts last season. I know we are at long odds to win the game but it would be nice to say you were at Fir Park when Motherwell won a Champions League game, if that was to be the case.
"I think we had 17,000 or 18,000 at Hampden a season ago and although I know football is expensive, to have a chance to see Champions League football at Fir Park is a dream for us as management and players and it should be for the supporters. I'm sure a full house could be reached."
McCall knows the weather, if not the atmosphere, is bound to be red hot in the second-leg in Greece next month. The former Rangers, Everton and Scotland midfielder only hopes his side are still in the tie by the time they arrive in Athens.
He said: "The key thing will be the weather, it will be very hot but to be still in it when we go there is the important thing. If I'm honest I don't know a great deal about them, they had a lot of players at the European Championship and historically they are a big name. We are just pleased that we are at home in the first game, that's what I wanted."
Goalkeeper Darren Randolph insists the Motherwell players were happy with the draw, telling Press Association Sport: "They were one of the teams that we were hoping to get. There was a lot of happy faces and positive talk when we found out. It will be tough out there but we get them here first.
"Just to be involved in the Champions League is massive, it's up there with the biggest game of my career so far.
"Everyone is excited and we can't wait to get started."
