Euro 2024: How to qualify, England seeded and everything you need to know for Sunday’s draw

The draw for the 2024 European Championship qualification will take place in Frankfurt on Sunday.

Here we take a look at what to expect.

When will the draw start and where will it take place?

The draw is scheduled to begin at 11:00am UK time and will take place at the Festhalle in Frankfurt.

How will it work?

53 countries take part in the raffle. Hosts Germany qualify automatically and Russia has been disqualified from qualifying due to the invasion of Ukraine.

Seven groups of five and three groups of six will be played. The four countries that made it to next summer’s Nations League finals – Netherlands, Croatia, Spain and Italy – are guaranteed to be placed in a group of five.

England, Scotland and Wales are in pot two, the Republic of Ireland in pot three and Northern Ireland in pot five out of six.

Who qualifies?

The top two teams in each group advance to the finals, while 12 other teams will compete for three additional spots in the play-offs, which will be held in March 2024.

The winners of groups in Leagues A, B and C of the Nations League – which includes Scotland – are guaranteed at least one place in the play-offs if they fail to finish in the top two of their qualifying group.

Are any teams kept separate?

Belarus and Ukraine cannot face each other. Belarus supports the Russian invasion of Ukraine and had to play their home games behind closed doors in Serbia during the Nations League. Armenia and Azerbaijan are kept separate, as are Gibraltar and Spain.

A maximum of two countries designated as “Winter Venues” can be drawn together – these are Belarus, Estonia, the Faroe Islands, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania and Norway.

Matings that would result in excessive travel have also been declared and will be limited to a maximum of one mating per group.

When are the games played?

The qualifying group stage will take place next year during the international breaks in March, June, September, October and November.

When does Euro 2024 start?

The tournament begins on Friday, June 14, 2024 in Munich. The final will be played in Berlin on July 14, with a total of 10 cities hosting games.
