From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Qualifying rounds for the UEFA Women's Euro 2013 determined which 11 teams joined Sweden, the hosts of the 2013 tournament, to play for the UEFA Women's Championship.

Tie breakers[edit]

If two or more teams are tied in points the tie breakers are in ascending order:[1]

  1. Points in matches between tied teams
  2. superior goal difference in matches between tied teams
  3. higher number of goals scored in matches between tied teams
  4. higher number of goals scored away from home in matches between tied teams (not to be used in preliminary round ties)

If the number of tied teams is reduced now, tie breakers 1 to 4 are applied again to the still tied teams. Only then the next tie breakers are used

  1. superior goal difference in all matches
  2. higher number of goals scored in all matches
  3. position in the UEFA women’s national team coefficient ranking used for the group stage draw
  4. higher number of goals scored away from home in all matches (not to be used in preliminary round ties)

Preliminary round[edit]

Eight teams were divided into two groups of four. The two group winners qualified for the actual qualification round. The draw took place on 3 December 2010.[2] The games were played from 3 to 8 March 2011. The hosts of the two one-venue preliminary round groups are indicated below in italics.

Ranking of second-placed teams[edit]

The highest ranked second placed team from the groups qualify automatically for the tournament, while the remainder will enter the play-offs. As some groups contain six teams and some five, matches against the sixth-placed team in each group will not be included in this ranking. As a result, a total of eight matches played by each team will count toward the purpose of the second-placed ranking table. The Netherlands finished as best runners-up.
