The tournament will be held in Galicia from 9 to 17 June. Spanish representatives Galicia have been placed in Group A alongside the team that finished runners-up as hosts at the last finals in 2019, Bavaria, plus Bosnia and Herzegovina's Zenica-Doboj, and Republic of Ireland Amateur.
The eight intermediate round winners were drawn without seeding into the two groups. The teams topping each section will progress to the final on 17 June as UEFA's amateur competition returns, the 2021 edition having been cancelled due to COVID-19.
