2012 Women's U19 qualifying draw

Italy have been paired with Austria, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Armenia in the 2011/12 UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship first qualifying round.

The first stage on the road to Turkey and the 2011/12 UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship was made this morning with the first qualifying round draw in Nyon.
