Road to the final

The UEFA European Women's Under-17 Championship consists of three distinct stages: two qualifying rounds and an eight-team final tournament.

Qualifying round
The competition begins with one-venue four-team mini-tournaments, although the nations with the highest UEFA coefficient may be given byes to the second qualifying round. The winners and runners-up of the groups go through along with the required number of third-placed teams with the best record against the first and second-placed teams, to ensure there are 24 sides in the next phase.

Elite round
The 24 teams are drawn into six groups of four teams. The groups are played as one-venue mini-tournaments with the winners and the runners-up with the best record against the teams first and third in their section progressing to the finals to join the hosts.

Final tournament
The eight teams are split into two groups of four. The top two in each group go through to the knockout phase, beginning in the semi-finals.

Further details, including the criteria for separating teams that finish level on points in a group, or after 80 minutes in a match, can be found in the official competition regulations.

The 2015 final tournament will be played in Iceland from 22 June to 4 July.

Iceland will stage the second eight-team UEFA European Women's Under-17 Championship from 22 June to 4 July 2015 as the tournament reverts to its standard summer dates.

From the championship's inaugural edition in 2007/08 until 2012/13, the tournament concluded with a four-team knockout event at the Colovray Stadium opposite UEFA's Swiss headquarters in Nyon. For 2013/14 the finals doubled in size and England were awarded that season's edition, played in late 2013 due to the dates of the 2014 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup, for which it acted as a qualifier.

Now the tournament is back in the summer and in a country which previously held the 2007 UEFA European Women's U19 Championship and men's 1997 U18 Championship.
