UEFA U21 EURO 2023

The qualifying campaign explained

Cymru have been drawn against the Netherlands, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Moldova and Gibraltar in Group E of the qualifying tournament which will decide the 14 teams that will join host nations Romania and Georgia in the finals scheduled to take place between 9 June and 2 July 2023.

The draw took place back in January when 53 teams were split into nine groups - eight groups of six teams and one group of five teams. Each group will be played in the usual home and away format with the nine group winners and the best runners-up (not counting results against the sixth-placed team) qualifying directly for the finals, while the remaining eight runners-up advance to the play-offs. The winners of the four two-legged home and away ties will then progress to the finals. Cymru have never qualified for the U21 finals, but did reach the play-offs in 2009.
