Default Euro 2016 (France)

I think there is no regional key for UEFA based competitions. FIFA rankings is usually all that matters.

Yep, I'm talking about the rankings for the 2016 competition. Although the final qualifying format isn't fully decided yet, we here know that we'll be in Pot 2 if Romania doesn't win both games in the WC play-off .

The qualifying for the next tournament is going to be a joke. 51 teams contested the last Euro qualifying and for 2016 there are going to be 24 in the Finals. So, almost half of the teams will eventually get through to the Finals!

I'd guess that they'll have 9 groups of 5 teams and one group of 6 teams, with the top 2 teams from each group qualifying automatically (i.e 20 teams). That would leave the top 8 out of 10 third place teams going into a playoff for the last 4 tickets.

So, being in Pot 2 is a huge advantage to us.

Oh, I see, I should learn to read better I blame all the WC hype here in Belgium (though Germany's obviously going to win it haha)

I'm curious about the new format of the EC. Is there a set duration for this format? Maybe they throw it in the trash bin after one edition

I think there will be 9 groups (8 with 6 and 1 with 5 countries).


First two placed progress directly (18) + one best placed 3rd country.

Remaining 8 3rd placed will play playoffs to decide the final 4 contenders to go to France.

That only makes 23 teams though

1st x 9
2nd x 9
3rd x 5 (1 direct and 4 playoff winners)

You're forgetting that France, as hosts, don't need to play the qualification.

I solved it!

Default Euro 2016

Maybe a Mod can bring across the last few posts in the FIFA WC 2014 thread to here?

And let's keep this thread civilised and not have to split in into two separate threads like last time!!

I reckon the opening post should be Rik's "Je suis un doofus".

Would be nice if that stuck for a couple of years

Normally I would agree 100% but are we sure that the hosts qualify automatically the next time? In the back of my mind, I seem to remember something about every team having to qualify...

We're sure Only from 2020 onwards there won't be an automatic qualification, because Euro 2020 will be held in 13 different cities all over Europe.

Never heard that about the EURO across the Europe! Can you give us some link?

Personally, I don't like this new format, that is too many teams. Although, It makes it easier to qualify.

Yes, France won't play the qualifications.

Platini pushes for a strange double group stage format:
1. First phase - 12 groups of 4 teams (yes, that's 48 teams and UEFA now have 54 members including Gibraltar). Only winners qualify.
2. Second phase - in the remaining six match-days (Platini mentions 12 in total), the remaining teams somehow contest the remaining spots, while the 12 teams qualified previously will be involved in a great pre-EURO friendly tournament in USA/Brazil/Argentina/London/France. Based on the 2011 plan, all UEFA members will get a (equal?) share of the TV rights for this friendly tournament.

Once this was voted down/against, but Platini wants this.

So, another tournament in the football calendar. I wouldn't be surprised if this comes to life, due to the big potential income. But we will also soon see players retiring at the age of 25.

Ok, I found this somewhere and it gives the current ranking figure (before this week's games) beside each team. This seems to confirm what Iztok predicted (i.e. 8 groups of 6 teams and 1 group of 5 teams).

Bosnia in Pot 1 is a great result for them. Despite their blip versus Japan, nobody in Pot 1 will fancy drawing Belgium from Pot 2.

The other thing that strikes me is that most of the Pot 3 teams could easily figure in Pot 2, so the qualifying for the automatic places is gonna be a scrap.

1 1 Spain 42158
2 2 Germany 41365
3 3 Netherlands 38541
4 4 Italy 35343
5 5 England 34885
