Due to the current unresolved epidemiological situation in Europe and the associated travel difficulties, the UEFA Executive Committee has decided to cancel the remainder of the 2019/20 UEFA European Under-19 Championship, the final tournament to be held in Northern Ireland.
As the 2019/20 edition of the UEFA European Under-19 Championship is the FIFA U-20 World Cup qualifiers scheduled for 20 May – 12 June in Indonesia, it has been decided that the five slots will be reserved for European teams. In the competition, the 2019/20 season will be allocated to the top five teams in the UEFA qualifying round coefficient ranking.
As a result, teams from England, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Portugal (in alphabetical order) will be the European representatives nominated to participate in the FIFA U-20 World Cup.
2020-22 UEFA European Under-19 Championship
The introduction of the new format, which was recently approved, divided into three different leagues by promotion and relegation, and the final tournament featuring eight teams in the summer of 2022, has been postponed to the 2021-23 edition of the competition. As a result, it will be the 2021/22 UEFA European Under-19 Championship.
