Holders Serbia will take on two former winners of the UEFA European Under-19 Championship following the finals draw in Felcsut, Hungary.
Having lifted the trophy for the first time in Lithuania last summer, Serbia earned a finals return by finishing top of Group 4 and will now take on Bulgaria in Group B, which also includes 2008 champions Germany and Ukraine, winners in 2009 – although neither side has featured in the finals since lifting the trophy.
Hosts Hungary are in Group A, where they will be joined by Austria, Portugal and finals debutants Israel. The draw was conducted at the Puskás Akadémia Pancho Aréna, one of four venues for the July tournament, by the chairman of UEFA's Youth and Amateur Football Committee Jim Boyce and former Hungary coach Kálmán Mészöly – the tournament ambassador.
The three group games will take place on 19, 22 and 25 July with the top two teams in each section progressing to the semi-finals three days later. The final takes place on 31 July. The top three teams in each group also qualify for the FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand from 30 May to 20 June 2015.
