- UEFA EURO 2008™ - Standings

The draw for the UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifying round took place in Montreux, Switzerland on 27 January 2006 at 12:00 CET.

The qualifying process commenced a month after the 2006 World Cup. Austria and Switzerland have already qualified for the tournament finals as host nations.

The qualifying format has been changed compared to previous tournaments. The winners and runners-up from seven groups will automatically qualify for the Championship, with the hosts filling the other two slots in the 16-team tournament. The change means there will be no play-offs between teams finishing in second place in the groups. Six of the qualifying groups contain seven teams, and the other eight.

The individual qualifying groups are as follows:

Group A Group B Group C Group D
Group E Group F Group G
