UEFA U21 EURO 2021

The qualifying campaign explained

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the EURO U21 finals will now be split over two periods, with the original venues of Hungary and Slovenia still both hosting games in the group stage and knockout stage.

This decision was approved by the UEFA Executive Committee in June. The nine group winners and five best runners-up will be joined by hosts Hungary and Slovenia for a group stage of four groups of four from 24 to 31 March 2021. Both host nations will stage games. The four group winners and four runners-up will then qualify for the final tournament which will be played as a straight knockout final eight, with quarter-finals and semi-finals in Hungary and Slovenia and the final in Ljubljana, from 31 May to 6 June 2021.
