EURO 2016 draw pots confirmed for 12 December

The four seeding pots have been confirmed for the UEFA EURO 2016 finals draw in Paris on 12 December with play-off winners Ukraine taking the last available berth in Pot 2.

The seeding pots have been announced for the UEFA EURO 2016 finals draw in Paris on 12 December after the conclusion of the play-offs. They are based on the UEFA national team coefficient rankings, which were confirmed after the end of the qualifying group stage in October.

Pot 2: Italy, Russia, Switzerland, Austria, Croatia, Ukraine*

Pot 3: Czech Republic, Sweden*, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary*

Pot 4: Turkey, Republic of Ireland*, Iceland, Wales, Albania, Northern Ireland

*Play-off winners

• The teams will be drawn into six groups of four (Groups A to F), with the top two in each section plus the four best third-placed sides advancing to the knockout phase. The group stage runs from 10–22 June 2016.
