Following the qualifying round, 28 teams will compete in the second stage next spring. They will be split into four seeding pots according to their coefficient.

In the draw seven groups will be formed, each containing one team from the four seeding pots, though no nation may meet opponents they played in the qualifying round. The mini-tournament hosts will then be selected; only the group winners will progress to join hosts Slovakia in the finals from 5 to 17 May. The top six teams in the tournament will progress to the FIFA U-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates from 17 October and 8 November.
