The UEFA Women's Under-17 Championship is a European championship football tournament, organized by UEFA, for national teams of women under age seventeen. The tournament was first played out in 2007–08, having been approved by the UEFA Executive Committee on 22 May 2006. It is also a FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup qualifying competition in even years. National under-17 teams whose countries belong to the European governing body UEFA can register to enter the competition.[1] Germany has won the most titles and also are the current holders.

Format[edit]

After two qualifying rounds, open to all eligible nations, four teams qualify for the final stage. They face in the semi-finals, with the winners contesting the final.

In 2011 it was announced, that the tournament will be expanded to eight teams[2] and beginning with the 2014 edition the eight qualified teams play round-robin in two groups of four.
