How was the finals draw seeded?

In previous draws, UEFA has seeded based on performance over a three-year period. But for the Euro 2020 finals, this was based purely on a nation's record in qualifying. Group winners are ranked 1-10, runners-up 11-20 and the four playoff winners 21-24 to create the four pots.

It means Ukraine were seeded, while world champions France were in Pot 2 and holders Portugal in Pot 3.

Pot 1: Belgium, Italy, England, Germany, Spain, Ukraine
Pot 2: France, Poland, Switzerland, Croatia, Netherlands, Russia
Pot 3: Portugal, Turkey, Denmark, Austria, Sweden, Czech Republic
Pot 4: Wales, Finland, Playoff A, Playoff B, Playoff C, Playoff D

Are there any prohibited clashes?

Yes, the following nations could not be drawn together in the same group. They can, however, meet in the knockout rounds.

Bosnia-Herzegovina / Kosovo
Russia / Kosovo
Serbia / Kosovo
Ukraine / Russia

This affected the group-stage draw. Italy, Belgium, Spain, Ukraine, England and Germany are seeded. Italy, Spain, England and Germany are hosts were assigned to a group. That left Belgium and Ukraine. However, Ukraine cannot go into the group with Russia as hosts, so they must go into Group C with Netherlands; and that means Belgium automatically went into Group B with Denmark and Russia.

If both hosts qualify, who plays at home in the head to head?

This happened in Group B (Denmark and Russia). Denmark have been drawn as the home team between the two hosts, which means Russia will only play two games in Saint Petersburg. It also means that Belgium, and either Wales or Finland, will play two games in Saint Petersburg and one in Copenhagen.

In any group where only one host has qualified automatically, that host will get three group games at home. So England, for instance, will play Scotland (if they qualify) at Wembley.
