Albania have only qualified once for a UEFA European Championship — the 2016 edition. They directly qualified after securing the second spot in their qualifying group; this meant they would appear on a major tournament finals for the first time in their history.[1] For the draw of the end stage that took place on 12 December 2015, they were seeded in Pot 4.[2]
