The number of teams that will participate in the Euro 2021 fixtures is 55. They are divided into 10 groups: 5 of 5 ( A-E ) and 5 groups of 6 ( F-J ). The Euro 2021 qualifying fixtures will be played from March to November of 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 are the teams chosen? Simple. The two top ranking teams from each group will take part in the finals. Four remaining places will be filled out by winners from playoffs in March next year.
How the groups were formed?
The decision on which teams will be 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 is made up of Nations League finalists. The rest of the pots is 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.
