All 55 UEFA member associations took part in the qualifying competition to claim one of the 24 places in the finals. There was no automatic qualification. The European Qualifiers competition started in March 2019 and ended in November 2020, when the last four teams booked their place in the final tournament via the European Qualifiers play-offs.
The finals draw was held at the ROMEXPO in Bucharest on Saturday 30 November 2019. The 20 qualified teams were placed into six groups of four according to seedings. The four 'play-off path' winners were also allocated groups prior to their qualification.
Group A: Turkey, Italy, Wales, Switzerland
Group B: Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Russia
Group C: Netherlands, Ukraine, Austria, North Macedonia
Group D: England, Croatia, Scotland, Czech Republic
Group E: Spain, Sweden, Poland, Slovakia
