After consultation with UEFA’s 55 member associations, the UEFA Executive Committee has taken several decisions regarding youth national team competitions considering the current COVID-19 situation across Europe.

In order to alleviate the additional operational and financial burden on national associations – caused by hygiene conditions impacting travel and accommodation, as well as testing to safeguard the health of athletes and minimize any potential risk of spreading the infection – the following decision was made about the 2019/20 UEFA European Women's Under-17 Championship, originally scheduled to take place from 9 to 22 May in Sweden, and then postponed to October (with the elite round in September):

  • Cancellation of the elite round and the final tournament
  • If the 2021 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup is confirmed (currently scheduled from 17 February to 7 March in India) the three European teams with the highest coefficient ranking will qualify: England, Germany and Spain, in alphabetical order.
