UEFA Group 4 of the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup qualification competition consisted of five teams: Sweden, Denmark, Ukraine, Hungary, and Croatia. The composition of the seven groups in the qualifying group stage was decided by the draw held on 25 April 2017,[1][2] with the teams seeded according to their coefficient ranking.[3]

The group was played in home-and-away round-robin format between 15 September 2017 and 4 September 2018. The group winners qualified for the final tournament, while the runners-up advanced to the play-offs if they were one of the four best runners-up among all seven groups (not counting results against the fifth-placed team).[4]
