Under-17 European Championship

Road to the UEFA U17 Euro 2017 in Croatia

The UEFA European Under-17 Championship is divided into three stages : the qualifying round, the elite round and the final tournament. When the final tournament (the European Championship itself) takes place in a year with an uneven number, the championship also acts as qualification for the FIFA U-17 World Cup.

Our Under-17's will play their qualifying round in Cyprus.

52 countries will start the qualifying round, in thirteen groups of four. The top two in each group along with the five third-placed teams with the best record against the leading pair will join Germany in the elite round in spring 2017.

In the elite round, the eight group winners and seven runners-up with the best record against the teams first and third in their pool will join Croatia in that May's finals.

The final tournament will also act as the European qualifier for UEFA's five berths in the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup in India, running from 19 August to 10 September.
