Euro 2024, qualification play-offs action

Twelve teams are participating in the UEFA Euro 2024 play-offs on 21 and 26 March 2024. Qualification for these play-offs will be decided based on performance in the 2022/23 UEFA Nations League.

met

Matches will be determined by ties following the end of the European qualifiers for the final. There will be six semi-finals on 21 March 2024 and three finals on 26 March 2024, with the three winners from these matches completing the 24-team roster for the final stage.

History of Dams

Play-offs have been held at six of the last seven EUROs, starting with the one-off match between the Netherlands and the Republic of Ireland in Liverpool at EURO 96. However, the UEFA EURO 2020 play-offs offered a very different format. . For the first time, teams had to go through multiple rounds, and unlike previous editions, teams qualified to enter the playoffs through the UEFA Nations League rather than the European qualifiers.

format

Twelve teams are selected based on their performance in the 2022/23 Nations League. The group winners from leagues A, B and C will qualify for these play-offs, but if they have already qualified through the play-offs, they will replace the highest-ranked non-qualifying team in their league. If there are not enough unqualified teams in the same league, a team from a lower league may be selected up to League D.
