UEFA Euro 2024 Playoffs Format Explained

How do the play-offs work for Euro 2024? UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying play-offs explained!

Overall, the 55 teams were drawn into 10 groups with 5 groups of 5 teams and 5 groups of 6 teams. Teams were seeded based on their UEFA Nations League overall rankings. With the new UEFA Nations League tournament, teams will be allowed further chances to qualify either through the playoffs or directly.

20 of the 24 final teams will be decided for the group stage. The other 4 teams will be picked through the qualifying playoffs. They were scheduled to take place in March 2024.

The participants of the play-offs were not be decided based on results from the qualifying group stage. Instead, 16 teams will be selected based on their performance in the 2018–19 UEFA Nations League. From now on, these teams will be divided into four paths with 4 teams in each. Only one team can progress from one path.

Henceforth, each play-off path will feature two single-leg semi-finals and one single-leg final. So, the best-ranked team will host the fourth-ranked team, and the second-ranked team will host the third-ranked team.
