2010 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship (Elite Round) was the second round of qualifications for the final tournament of UEFA U-17 Championship 2010. The Elite round was played between March 17 and April 1, 2010. The 28 teams advancing from the qualifying round were distributed into seven groups of four teams each, with each group being contested in a round-robin format, with one of the four teams hosting all six group games. The seven group-winning teams automatically qualified for the final tournament in Liechtenstein. The host nation was guaranteed one of the 8 final tournament spots, but since Liechtenstein withdrew, the eight team to qualify was chosen from the second-placed teams with the best record against the first and third placed teams in its group.

Each team was placed in one of four drawing pots, according to their qualifying round results. The seven sides with the best records were placed in Pot A, and so forth until Pot D, which contained the seven teams with the weakest records. During the draw, each group was filled with one team from every pot, with the only restriction being that teams that played each other in the first qualifying round could not be drawn into the same group again. The draw was conducted December 7, 2009.[1]
