Dublin to stage European Qualifiers draw on 2 December 2018

 

The Convention Centre Dublin will be the venue for the UEFA EURO 2020 qualifying draw on 2 December 2018.

All 55 UEFA member nations will be involved in the European Qualifiers running from March to November 2019. The ten groups of five or six teams will decide 20 finalists, with the remaining four contenders emerging from the play-offs, for which teams will qualify via the new UEFA Nations League.

UEFA selected the Republic of Ireland as the venue for this draw following an invitation to bid issued to the host cities of the final tournament of this unique European Football Championship. UEFA EURO 2020 marks the 60th anniversary of UEFA's prestigious national-team competition, and matches will be hosted in 13 cities across Europe on a one-off basis. 

The Irish capital is set to stage three group games and one round of 16 tie at the Dublin Arena. The other host cities for UEFA EURO 2020 will be Amsterdam, Baku, Bilbao, Brussels, Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Glasgow, London, Munich, Rome and Saint Petersburg.

B If it needs to be replaced, why is in the selection for the opening match?

A: The bid for Euro 2020 matches was made on the back of the new Belgium National Stadium being built. However, it's been beset by delays over environmental and building permits and if it happens it may be built with a smaller capacity and may not be ready by 2020. The existing King Baudouin Stadium does not comply with UEFA requirements. This is Belgium's problem - they promised something they're failing to deliver.

B: I assume all the stadiums with a certain capacity not already hosting knckout-stage games are in the mix for this match. Brussels would obviously drop out of contention if they lose their hosting rights, but that hasn't happened (yet) so they're still technically in there.

----

I'm going to guess (don't put any money on this) that Brussels will be replaced by Stockholm and the opening match will go to Amsterdam (Belgium gone, Olympic Stadium in Rome not the greatest for football, Russia ruled out as previous world cup host plus sh1tstorm over IOC decision re PC2018 will be raging by next Thursday, Hampden not greatest stadium and British city already hosting semis and final).

Unanimous decision apparently. UEFA bloody loves Wembley don't they?!

Also, it's probably the only win London will get over Brussels for a while. Maybe we should get the FA to run Brexit? :P

London to host additional matches at UEFA EURO 2020
Thursday 7 December 2017

The UEFA Executive Committee met today at the House of European Football in Nyon, Switzerland and took the following decisions:

UEFA EURO 2020

- Due to the Eurostadium project’s failure to meet the conditions imposed by the UEFA Executive Committee during its meeting of 20th September 2017, the four matches initially scheduled to be held in Brussels will now be allocated to Wembley Stadium, London following a vote by the committee. This means Wembley will host a total of seven matches since they were already set to stage the semi-finals and final of the tournament.

 - The Stadio Olimpico in Rome was selected as the venue for the opening match.

- The host city pairings were decided by means of a random draw - from six different lists of city pairings established on the basis of sporting strength and geographical considerations - and will be as follows:

- Group A: Rome and Baku 
- Group B: Saint Petersburg and Copenhagen
- Group C: Amsterdam and Bucharest
- Group D: London and Glasgow
- Group E: Bilbao and Dublin
- Group F: Munich and Budapest

Each qualified host country will play a minimum of two matches at home in the group-stage.

Seems like a pretty odd way of spreading it out & Cardiff is especially hacked off - if they wanted that many games at Wembley, they could've given it to England :lol: Interesting idea of restricting travel times by putting Rome with Baku too. I presume that means the Brussels stadium project is finally dead now?

It means they couldn't give guarantees it'd be ready for 2020. As far as I can work out the intention is still to build it but it's bogged down in layers of bureaucracy still.

Another thing worth mentioning with this weird tournament is that the host city group pairings were released today. It means England will definitely be in the same group as Scotland if they both qualify (same goes for all the host country pairings)...

Group A: Rome and Baku
Group B: Saint Petersburg and Copenhagen
Group C: Amsterdam and Bucharest
Group D: London and Glasgow
Group E: Bilbao and Dublin
Group F: Munich and Budapest

UEFA EURO 2020 qualifying draw made in Dublin
Sunday 2 December 2018

The ten UEFA EURO 2020 qualifying groups have been confirmed following the draw in Dublin on Sunday.

UEFA EURO 2020 qualifying groups

Group A: England, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Kosovo

Group B: Portugal, Ukraine, Serbia, Lithuania, Luxembourg

Group C: Netherlands, Germany, Northern Ireland, Estonia, Belarus

Group D: Switzerland, Denmark, Republic of Ireland, Georgia, Gibraltar

Group E: Croatia, Wales, Slovakia, Hungary, Azerbaijan

Group F: Spain, Sweden, Norway, Romania, Faroe Islands, Malta

Group G: Poland, Austria, Israel, Slovenia, FYR Macedonia, Latvia

Group H: France, Iceland, Turkey, Albania, Moldova, Andorra

Group I: Belgium, Russia, Scotland, Cyprus, Kazakhstan, San Marino

Group J: Italy, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Finland, Greece, Armenia, Liechtenstein

How will qualifying work?

Simple: every team in a group plays each other twice, with the top two in each section qualifying automatically for the finals. That's 20 of the 24 finals places taken care of, with a further four filled via the play-offs.

How do the play-offs fit in?

Each separate League (A, B, C and D) in the UEFA Nations League has been allocated one UEFA EURO 2020 place. Four sides from each League will contest single-leg semi-finals and a one-off final (entirely specific to the EURO) in March 2020. The winner of each of these four one-off finals gets a ticket to UEFA EURO 2020.

In theory, the play-offs are contested by the four winners of the quartet of groups that form each of the four Leagues. However, if a UEFA Nations League group winner has already qualified via the European Qualifiers, their spot goes to the next best-ranked team in their League.

If a League does not have four teams to compete (say, for example, ten of the 12 League A teams qualify automatically), the remaining slots are allocated to sides from another League in accordance with the overall rankings.

How did the draw work?

The teams were split into seven pots: the UEFA Nations League pot, consisting of the four teams set to compete in next year's Finals, as well as Pots 1 to 6. The four countries in the UEFA Nations League pot – Switzerland, Portugal, Netherlands and England – were drawn into the first position in Groups A to D to ensure they each have two dates free for the Finals in June.

The pots were determined by the overall UEFA Nations League rankings issued on 21 November.

The six teams in Pot 1 were drawn into the first position in Groups E to J. The ten teams in Pot 2 were drawn into second positions in the ten groups, with the draw continuing in similar style for Pots 3, 4 and 5 to fill positions 3, 4 and 5 respectively. The teams in Pot 6 were then drawn into the sixth position in the six-team Groups F to J.

There were various other restrictions regarding host nations, prohibited team clashes, winter venues and excessive travel implemented around the draw.
