EURO 2016 draw pots confirmed for 12 December

Baku, November 18, AZERTAC

The seeding pots have been announced for the UEFA EURO 2016 finals draw in Paris on 12 December after the conclusion of the play-offs. They are based on the UEFA national team coefficient rankings, which were confirmed after the end of the qualifying group stage in October.

Hosts France take position one in Group A so will not be involved in the draw, meaning Pot 1 will have five teams allocated to the remaining groups. The other three pots have six teams each, with one side from each pot allotted to all six groups.

Pot 1: Spain (holders), Germany, England, Portugal, Belgium

Pot 2: Italy, Russia, Switzerland, Austria, Croatia, Ukraine

Pot 3: Czech Republic, Sweden, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary

Pot 4: Turkey, Republic of Ireland, Iceland, Wales, Albania, Northern Ireland

The teams will be drawn into six groups of four (Groups A to F), with the top two in each section plus the four best third-placed sides advancing to the knockout phase. The group stage runs from 10–22 June 2016.
