Bye to final tournament: Lithuania (hosts)

Details
Lithuania will stage the fifth final tournament since the expansion to eight teams in summer 2018, following in the footsteps of England, Iceland, Belarus and the Czech Republic, who stage the next finals in May.

• While Lithuania qualify directly for the finals as hosts, the country with the highest rating on the coefficient ranking list (based on results from 2013/14 to 2015/16) receive a bye to the elite round in spring 2018: Germany.

• The remaining 44 entrants will be in the qualifying round, where they will be split into 11 groups of four.

• There are four seeding pots of 11 nations each composed according to the coefficient ranking list. Each group will contain one team from each pot, with hosts then appointed to stage the mini-tournaments between 1 August and 29 October 2017.

The top two in each group and the third-placed team with the best record against the leading pair in their section accompany top seeds Germany into the 24-team elite round. Seven countries will eventually qualify for the finals to join Lithuania.
