UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying draw: live stream, start time, TV info and more


On Sunday, UEFA will hold the draw for the Euro 2016 tournament in France. A record 53 teams are partaking in the tournament, hosted in France.

How the draw works according to UEFA.com:

The European Qualifiers are made up of eight groups of six teams and one of five teams, who contest home and away fixtures. The nine group winners, the nine group runners-up and the best third-placed side will qualify directly for the final tournament. The eight remaining third-placed teams will contest play-offs to determine the last four qualifiers for the 24-nation finals.

And there are special rules for France’s involvement:

France are assured of their place in the final tournament, but will play centralised friendlies in accordance with the Week of Football match schedule against teams from the five-team qualifying group. There will be no points awarded for games in which France figure, so these will have no affect on the Group I table.

Start Time: 6:00 a.m. ET
Location: Nice, France
Stadium: Palais des Congrès Acropolis
