The 2020 UEFA European Under-19 Championship qualifying competition is a men's under-19 football competition that will determine the seven teams joining the automatically qualified hosts Northern Ireland in the 2020 UEFA European Under-19 Championship final tournament.

Apart from Northern Ireland, 53 of the remaining 54 UEFA member national teams entered the qualifying competition. Players born on or after 1 January 2001 are eligible to participate.

Format

The qualifying competition consists of two rounds:

  • Qualifying round: Apart from Portugal, which receive a bye to the elite round as the teams with the highest seeding coefficient, the remaining 52 teams are drawn into 13 groups of four teams. Each group is played in single round-robin format at one of the teams selected as hosts after the draw. The 13 group winners, the 13 runners-up, and the third-placed team with the best record against the first and second-placed teams in their group advance to the elite round.
  • Elite round: The 28 teams are drawn into seven groups of four teams. Each group is played in single round-robin format at one of the teams selected as hosts after the draw. The seven group winners qualify for the final tournament.

Qualifying round

Draw

The draw for the qualifying round was held on 6 December 2018, 10:00 CET (UTC+1), at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

The teams were seeded according to their coefficient ranking, calculated based on the following:

Each group contained one team from Pot A, one team from Pot B, one team from Pot C, and one team from Pot D. For political reasons, Spain and Gibraltar, Serbia and Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo, and Azerbaijan and Armenia would not be drawn in the same group.

Ranking of third-placed teams

To determine the four best third-placed teams from the qualifying round which advance to the elite round, only the results of the third-placed teams against the first and second-placed teams in their group are taken into account.

Template:2020 UEFA European Under-19 Championship qualification third-placed

Elite round

Draw

The draw for the elite round will be held in December 2019 at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

The teams are seeded according to their results in the qualifying round. Portugal, which received a bye to the elite round, are automatically seeded into Pot A. Each group contains one team from Pot A, one team from Pot B, one team from Pot C, and one team from Pot D. Winners and runners-up from the same qualifying round group cannot be drawn in the same group, but the best third-placed team can be drawn in the same group as winners or runners-up from the same qualifying round group.
