The Lilywhites will face a trip to Rochdale in the first round of the Capital One Cup.
The draw was revealed live on Sky Sports News on Tuesday morning, with North End making the short trip to Spotland to face the recently promoted side.
The game will be played week commencing Monday 11th August, with the exact date, kick-off time and ticketing arrangements to be confirmed.
However, the Football League have instigated a new scheme in 2014/15 which will mean that all under 16s will only pay £1 per ticket in the first round of the competition when accompanied by a paying adult.
As soon as the match details are confirmed they will be published on PNE.Com.
