2009 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship

2009 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship

UEFA U-21 Championship 2009 began on 31 May 2007 and is the 17th staging of UEFA's European Under-21 Football Championship. This competition reverts to a two-year format, after the single-year 2006-07 competition which allowed the change to odd-numbered years.

Sweden will host the final tournament in June 2009, therefore their under-21 team qualify automatically. 51 of the 52 other nations in UEFA's jurisdiction, including Montenegro and Serbia who will compete separately for the first time, will go through a series of qualifiers to decide the seven other teams to join Sweden at the finals. Andorra did not take part.
