England, Iceland, Belarus have Women's U17 honour

England, Iceland and Belarus will be the first nations to stage eight-team UEFA European Women's Under-17 Championship final tournaments in 2014, 2015 and 2016 respectively.

England, Iceland and Belarus will be the first nations to stage eight-team UEFA European Women's Under-17 Championship final tournaments, the UEFA Executive Committee has announced at its meeting in Istanbul.

Having been played as a four-team final tournament at the Stade Colovray opposite UEFA headquarters in the Swiss town of Nyon from its inception in 2007/08, the competition's 2012/13 edition will be the last to conclude in such a fashion. The tournament will then expand to become an eight-sided showpiece with a host nation selected in advance.

The 2013/14 finals will be held in England, the following year Iceland will stage the event, before the 2015/16 edition reaches its climax in Belarus. Both Iceland and Belarus have hosted the Women's U19 finals in recent years, while UEFA Women's EURO 2005 took place in England.
