The 2011 UEFA European Under-19 Championship was the tenth edition of UEFA's European Under-19 Championship since it was renamed from the original under-18 event, in 2001. The tournament took place in Romania from 20 July to 1 August 2011. France were the title holders, but failed to qualify for the finals. Spain won the tournament.[2]

Qualification[edit]

Main articles: Qualifying round and Elite round

Qualification for the final tournament was played over two stages:

The final tournament of the Championship was preceded by two qualification stages: a qualifying round and an Elite round. During these rounds, 52 national teams competed to determine the seven teams that would join the already qualified host nation Romania.

The qualifying round was played between 28 September and 30 October 2010. The 52 teams were divided into 13 groups of four teams, with each group being contested as a mini-tournament hosted by one of the group's teams. After all matches were played, the 13 group winners and 13 group runners-up advanced to the Elite round. Alongside the 26 winner and runner-up teams, the two best third-placed teams also qualified.

The following teams qualified for the tournament

Venues[edit]

The tournament venues will all be located in Ilfov County, near the capital Bucharest, at already existing stadiums in four locations (one town and three communes).

Location Stadium Capacity Notes
Berceni Stadionul Berceni 2,600 Three group matches[3]
Buftea Stadionul Buftea 800 Three group matches[4]
Chiajna Stadionul Concordia 3,700 Three group games, a semifinal and the final[5]
Mogoşoaia Stadionul Mogoşoaia 1,000 Three group matches and a semifinal[6]

Group stage[edit]

The draw was held in Bucharest on 8 June 2011, when hosts Romania and the seven elite-round qualifiers divided into two groups of four.[7][8]

Each group winner and runner-up advanced to the semi-finals.

Tie-break criteria for teams even on points:

  • Higher number of points obtained in the group matches played among the teams in question
  • Superior goal difference resulting from the group matches played among the teams in question
  • Higher number of goals scored in the group matches played among the teams in question
  • If, after having applied the above criteria, two teams still have an equal ranking, the same criteria will be reapplied to determine the final ranking of the two teams. If this procedure does not lead to a decision, the following criteria will apply:
    • Results of all group matches:
      • Superior goal difference
      • Higher number of goals scored
    • Fair play ranking of the teams in question
    • Drawing of lots
  • If two teams which have the same number of points and the same number of goals scored and conceded play their last group match against each other and are still equal at the end of that match, their final rankings will be determined by kicks from the penalty mark and not by the criteria listed above

All times are Eastern European Summer Time (UTC+3)
