The 2010 UEFA European Under-17 Championship was the ninth edition of UEFA's European Under-17 Football Championship, held in Liechtenstein from May 18 to May 30, 2010. The hosts decided not to field a team, fearing it would not be competitive enough for the tournament's prestige; their place was occupied by France, the best runner-up in the qualification's elite round. Germany was the 2009 title holder, but failed to qualify. In the final, England defeated Spain by 2–1, and achieved their first ever under-17 European title.

Qualification[edit]

Main articles: Qualifying round and Elite round

The final tournament of the 2010 UEFA European Under-17 Championship was preceded by two qualification stages: a qualifying round and an Elite round. During these rounds, 52 national teams competed to determine the eight teams.

Participants[edit]

Despite being hosts, Liechtenstein did not participate in the finals. They withdrew from the competition after raising concerns with UEFA that their U-17 side would not be competitive, and devalue the tournament.[1]
