Draw procedure

The eight lowest-ranked nations accoring to the UEFA Regions' Cup coefficients (Slovenia, Scotland, San Marino, Greece, Estonia, Sweden, Wales and Kazakhstan) will be allocated places in the two four-team preliminary groups, to be contested before 31 July 2014 with the hosts selected after the draw.

The two preliminary round group winners will join the remaining 30 contenders in the intermediate round. The 16 highest-ranked associations will be placed in Pot A and the 14 others plus the 2 preliminary round group winners will be placed in Pot B. The teams will be drawn into eight groups each containing a pair of teams from each pot, with hosts then to be appointed and all mini-tournaments to be concluded by 15 December 2014.

The eight group winners of the intermediate round will qualify for the final tournament. In principle, the finals will take place in the last two weeks of June 2015 in one of the countries that qualify. The hosts will be appointed by the end of December 2014 from among those associations which indicate an interest.
