Group B: Germany (holders), Sweden, Italy, Russia
Group C: France, Iceland, Austria, Switzerland
Group D: England, Scotland, Spain, Portugal
17:30CET, 8 November, Luxor Theatre, Rotterdam
Four groups of four teams will be determined by the draw, with the top two in each group progressing to the knockout phase.
• Draw procedure
Four pots have been formed, based on each team's ranking in the UEFA Women's National Team Coefficients.
Pot 1: Germany (holders), France, England
Pot 2: Norway, Sweden, Spain, Switzerland
Pot 3: Italy, Iceland, Scotland, Denmark
Pot 4: Austria, Belgium, Russia, Portugal
* Hosts the Netherlands are not included in the pots as they are automatically assigned as team A1. Pot 1 therefore contains three teams.
• Draw procedure
Teams will be drawn into four groups of four, with the Netherlands automatically assigned to Group A (A1). The Pot 1 teams will be drawn to fill that berth in the other three sections. Each group will then be allocated one team each from the remaining three pots, drawn in the order Pot 4, Pot 3 and Pot 2.
The draw ceremony will presented by Dutch sports journalist Diana Kuip and be conducted by the all-time Netherlands top scorer Manon Melis, and a member of Germany’s UEFA Women's EURO 2013 winning side, Nadine Kessler.
