How did qualifying work?
The success of the first 24-team UEFA European Championship – UEFA EURO 2016 – vindicated UEFA’s decision to broaden the net for the final tournament, and 24 sides will be involved again at UEFA EURO 2020.
▪ Twenty teams – the top two in each of the ten groups – reached the tournament via the European Qualifiers, running from March to November 2019.
▪ Four more countries will qualify via the play-offs, which have been scheduled for 8 October (semi-finals) and 12 November (finals).
What is the tournament format?
The format will be the same as for UEFA EURO 2016. The top two in each of the six final tournament groups will proceed to the round of 16 along with the four best third-placed finishers.
Will the hosts play their games at home?
Host nations that qualify are automatically placed in the following groups.
Group A: Italy (Olimpico in Rome)*
Group B: Russia (Saint Petersburg Stadium), Denmark (Parken Stadium, Copenhagen)*
