UEFA EURO 2024 finals draw: All you need to know

Two potential play-off matches stand in the way of Cymru’s place in the UEFA EURO 2024 finals next summer in Germany, however Rob Page’s side will discover their potential opponents this Saturday (2 December) as the draw takes place in Hamburg at 17:00 GMT.

Here’s all you need to know about Saturday’s draw from UEFA.com.

Where is the EURO 2024 draw?

The draw takes place at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Germany. Hamburg is one of ten EURO 2024 host cities and will stage four group games and a quarter-final.

How does the EURO 2024 draw work?

Teams have been allocated to one of four pots (1, 2, 3, 4) in advance of the draw, in accordance with their results in the qualifying group stage. Hosts Germany are seeded in Pot 1 but are not drawn as they are automatically allocated to Group A. The three eventual play-off winners have been assigned to Pot 4.

A further six pots (A, B, C, D, E, F) are required to draw the respective team’s position in each group. Pots B-F contain four balls each to represent the positions available in each group (eg B1, B2, B3 and B4). Pot A contains only three balls for the positions A2, A3 and A4 in Group A, since Germany will occupy position A1.
