UEFA EURO 2020 play-offs

2023 CECAFA U18: Group A Standings and Upcoming Matches
November 15, 2019

The 16 UEFA Nations League group winners are all guaranteed at least a UEFA EURO 2020 play-off place.

All 55 member associations – including those 16 UEFA Nations League group winners – have the chance to qualify directly for UEFA EURO 2020, with the top two in each European Qualifiers group advancing directly to the tournament.

That leaves four EURO places to be determined via the play-offs.

UEFA Nations League 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

However, these play-offs do not take place until March 2020 – AFTER the conclusion of the conventional European Qualifiers.

However, group winners cannot be placed in a play-off group with teams from a higher League. Therefore, should a play-off group including at least one group winner not have enough teams from the same League, the remaining spot(s) will have to be filled by teams from a lower League.
