UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifiers- Format

All 16 UEFA Nations League winners (group stage) will be guaranteed a minimum of a UEFA Euro 2020 play-off spot. However, the specific positions will be determined on the basis of performance during the Euro 2020 Qualifiers. All 55 member associations including the 16 UEFA Nations League group winners will get the opportunity for qualifying directly for the Euro 2020 held by UEFA.

The two top-placed teams in every group will get direct entry into the tournament. The play-offs will determine four positions for the tournament. The four group winners, in theory at least, will be contesting the separate play-offs in every League.

Here are the group winners-

League A: England, Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland
League B: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Denmark, Sweden, Ukraine
League C: Finland, Norway, Scotland, Serbia
League D: Belarus, North Macedonia, Georgia, Kosovo

The play-offs will be held post March 2020 after the qualifiers are concluded. The play-off slots for any UEFA Nations League group winner who qualifies via these qualifiers will be given to the team which is ranked as the next best in the particular League. Rankings of teams are between 1-55 based on their group position, goal difference, points scored and goals scored. In case a league does not have four competing teams, the remainder of the positions will be given to teams from a separate league on the basis of UEFA Nations League rankings.

Group winners, however, cannot be positioned in a play-off group with teams who come from a Higher League. A play-off group should thus have a minimum of one group winner and in case there are not enough teams from the same league, the remainder spots will be given to teams competing in a lower league. The highest-ranked team for every path will be playing the fourth ranked team and the second and third placed nations will be playing the second semi-final match. These will be knockout matches (single-leg) and the highest ranked teams will be hosting semi-finals. The host for every play-off (each path) will be drawn on the 22nd of November, 2019.

The Finals were held last year in Portugal and will be held separately. In spite of being the winners, Portugal will not automatically qualify for Euro 2020.
