Play-off winner C (Scotland, Norway, Serbia or Israel)
Play-off winner D (Georgia, North Macedonia, Kosovo or Belarus)

How did the draw work?

  • The draw involved the two-top finishers in the ten qualifying groups and the eventual four play-off winners (to be decided in March 2020). None of the 12 host nations qualify automatically.
  • Seedings were based on overall rankings based on the qualifying groups by the following criteria (results against teams in sixth place were discarded):

a) Final position in group
b) Points
c) Goal difference
d) Goals scored
e) Away goals scored
f) Number of wins
g) Number of away wins
h) Lower disciplinary points total (3 points for red card including for second booking, 1 point for single yellow card for a player in a match)
i) Position in overall UEFA Nations League rankings

  • Host nations that qualify are placed automatically in the following groups.

Group A: Italy (Stadio Olimpico, Rome)*
Group B: Russia (Saint Petersburg Stadium, St Petersburg), Denmark* (Parken Stadium, Copenhagen)
Group C: Netherlands (Johan Cruijff ArenA, Amsterdam)*, Romania**(National Arena, Bucharest)
Group D: England (Wembley Stadium, London)*, Scotland** (Hampden Park, Glasgow)
Group E: Spain (Estadio de San Mamés, Bilbao)*, Republic of Ireland** (Dublin Arena, Dublin)
Group F: Germany (Fußball Arena München, Munich)*, Hungary** (Puskás Aréna, Budapest)

*Guaranteed to play all three group stage games at home having qualified via the European Qualifiers.
**If they qualify through play-offs will be placed in that group with two home games (will play away to the other group host that qualified automatically)

  • As Russia and Denmark both reached UEFA EURO 2020 via the European Qualifiers, an additional draw was held on 22 November to decide which team plays all three group stage games at home; Russia will have two group stage home games.
  • Due to decisions of the UEFA Executive Committee decisions valid at the time of the draw, the following teams could not be drawn together in the group stage:
    • Bosnia and Herzegovina / Kosovo*
    • Serbia / Kosovo*
    • Russia / Kosovo*
    • Ukraine / Russia (the restriction also applied to St Petersburg as group match venue)
    *These clashes cannot happen during the group stage, because Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, and Serbia are all in the play-offs and therefore in the same pot. Kosovo are part of play-off Path D and have been assigned to play in Group C or F.
  • All restrictions applied only to the group stage. It could therefore not be excluded that the above-mentioned teams would meet during the knockout stage of the tournament.
