This page is a summary of the UEFA European Championship qualifying, the process that UEFA-affiliated national association football teams go through in order to qualify for the UEFA European Championship.

Note: Yugoslavia completed a successful qualification campaign and was due to participate in UEFA Euro 1992, but was banned from participating as the country was under international sanctions by the United Nations Security Council Resolution 757. Denmark, who had originally failed to qualify, replaced Yugoslavia in the finals. The legends and the footnotes explain how the tables reflect this.
