The number of teams that participated in the Euro 2020 fixtures was 55. They were divided into 10 groups: 5 of 5 ( A-E ) and 5 groups of 6 ( F-J ). The Euro 2020 qualifying fixtures were played from March to November 2019.
With the end of the Nations League, the 6 seeding pots were announced. The number of teams which will participate in the finals next year is 24.
How were the teams chosen? Simple. It was pre-determined that the two top-ranking teams from each group will take part in the finals. The four remaining places were then filled out by winners from playoffs in October and November 2020.
How were the groups formed?
The decision regarding which teams were involved in the draw was based on the Nations League Rankings. Those 55 teams were then divided into 7 pots. Of 7 pots, the first one was made up of Nations League finalists. The rest of the pots were filled out according to the teams’ overall ranking.
The first positions in groups A through D were reserved for the four Nations League finalists. After that, the first positions in groups E-J were assigned to those teams who made it into the Pot 1. Then came Pot 2, whose members were drawn in the second places of the ten groups. The rest went on normally: Pot 3 members into third positions, Pot 4 into fourth, and Pot 5 into fifth. Finally, the draw saw Pot 6 teams, 5 of them, drawn into final (sixth) positions in groups F-J.
