UEFA Women’s Euro 2025 qualifying draw: All you need to know

Cymru will discover their opponents for the upcoming UEFA Women’s Euro 2025 qualifying campaign when the draw takes place in Nyon, Switzerland at 12pm on Tuesday 5 March.

New head coach Rhian Wilkinson’s side have been placed in Pot 1 for the League B draw alongside Portugal, Switzerland and Scotland, ensuring they will not play against any of these three teams. Cymru’s opponents will therefore be drawn from Pots 2, 3 and 4 with matches taking place from April to July.

Who could Cymru face?

Pot 2: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Hungary, Serbia

Pot 3: Northern Ireland, Slovakia, Ukraine, Türkiye

Pot 4: Azerbaijan, Israel, Kosovo, Malta


In order for Cymru to qualify for next summer’s EURO finals, they will need to do so via the play-offs.

The first round of the play-offs is in two paths. In one path, the teams finishing third and fourth in League A will play the five group winners and three best-ranked runners-up in League C. The eight winners progress to the second round.

In the other first-round path, the four group winners and two best-ranked runners-up in League B (Cymru’s group) will be drawn into six ties against the remaining two runners-up and four third-placed teams in League B. The six winners progress to the second round.

In the second round, the teams from both paths come together and will be drawn into seven ties, with seeding for the seven highest-ranked teams according to the European Qualifiers overall league rankings. The seven winners progress to the final tournament.

The play-off paths will be adjusted as necessary to take into account the performance of Women’s EURO hosts Switzerland, who will compete in League B but are guaranteed a slot in the final tournament.
