UEFA European Football Championships 2016 Qualification Competition.
Full details of all group matches and tables for the Euro 2016 Football Championships to be held in France.
The 2016 UEFA European Championship, commonly referred to as Euro 2016, will be the 15th European Championship for men's national football teams organised by UEFA. It will be held in France from 10th June to 10th July 2016.
For the first time, the European Championship final tournament will be contested by 24 teams, having been expanded from the 16-team format that had been used since 1996.
Under this new format, the finalists will contest a group stage consisting of six groups of four teams, followed by a knockout stage including three rounds and the final.
As hosts, France have automatically qualified for the final tournament, while the other 53 national teams will compete in a qualifying competition, running from September 2014 to November 2015, to secure the remaining 23 places.
Among these teams are back-to-back defending champions Spain, and for the first time since their affiliation with UEFA, Gibraltar.
France was chosen as the host on 28 May 2010, after a bidding process in which they beat Italy and Turkey for the right to host the 2016 finals.
The matches will be played in ten stadia in nine cities: Bordeaux, Lens, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Paris, St-Etienne and Toulouse.
It will be the 3rd time that France hosts the tournament, after the inaugural 1960 edition and the 1984 finals. France have won the European Championship twice: in 1984 and 2000.
