When is the draw and how can I follow it?
The draw ceremony is at 17:30CET on Tuesday at Rotterdam’s Luxor Theatre and is streamed live on UEFA.com.
Who is in the draw?
Sixteen teams have qualified: hosts the Netherlands, the 14 teams that came through the qualifying group stage and play-off winners Portugal.
Germany, the reigning champions, have held the title since 1995 and have won it six times in a row. Fellow former champions Norway and Sweden are involved, while Austria, Belgium, Portugal, Scotland and Switzerland are making their EURO debuts.
How does the draw work?
To fill the four groups of four teams each, four pots have been formed, based on every side’s ranking in the UEFA Women’s National Team Coefficients following the end of the qualifying group stage. The Netherlands are not in any pot but will be automatically placed in position one of Group A.
Pot 1: Germany, France, England
Pot 2: Norway, Sweden, Spain, Switzerland
Pot 3: Italy, Iceland, Scotland, Denmark
Pot 4: Austria, Belgium, Russia, Portugal
• Draw procedure
The Netherlands are automatically placed in position one of Group A and the other Pot 1 teams will be drawn to fill that same berth in the other three sections. Each group will then be allocated one team each from the remaining three pots, drawn in the order of Pot 4, Pot 3 and Pot 2.
The draw ceremony will be presented by Dutch sports journalist Diana Kuip and conducted by the Netherlands’ all-time top scorer Manon Melis and a member of Germany’s UEFA Women’s EURO 2013 winning side, Nadine Kessler.
How do the finals work and how can one get tickets?
The top two in each of the four groups will go into the knockout phase. Every team will play in three different venues in the group stage, with the exact schedule including kick-off times confirmed after the draw is made.
Ticket sales will also be launched at the draw ceremony, with tickets due to be available from 19:00CET on Tuesday via www.weuro2017.nl/tickets.
