All 55 entrants will be involved in the qualifying group stage, with no exemptions for any of the 12 EURO host nations. The teams will be drawn into ten groups: five of five and five of six, played between March and November 2019.
In order to allow all 12 UEFA EURO 2020 host association teams a chance of qualifying as group winner or group runner-up, a maximum of two such teams can be drawn into one group. If a UEFA EURO 2020 host association team is, or could be, drawn into a group already containing two such teams, this team is placed instead in the first available group in alphabetical order as indicated by the computer.
