The first game (formally, the home game for Ukraine) is scheduled for October 9, 2016; the second one is slated for October 6, 2017. Andriy Pavelko, the President of Ukraine’s Federation of Football, said this at a briefing in Kyiv.

The venues for the both matches have not yet been selected. Previously, Pavelko surmised that the matches could take place in Turkey.

In May 2016, Kosovo has become the full-fledged member state of FIFA. In June, UEFA included the country’s national team into Group I for FIFA World Cup 2018 Qualification (Croatia, Islandia, Turkley, Finland, Ukraine and Kosovo).
