How do the finals work?
The finals are being held online from 8 to 10 July. The teams in each group played each other in a dual tournament bracket format (double elimination without the grand final). Each group stage fixture was composed of two matches and the top two teams in each group progressed to an eight-team single elimination bracket.
For the elimination bracket, the four group winners were drawn against a runner-up team from another group. Each match until the final will be a best-of-three series. The final will be best of five. All matches are 1-vs-1.
Can I watch it?
Matches will be shown live here and on UEFA’s official YouTube channel.
How did qualifying work?
The qualifying group stage ran over four days between 15 March and 26 April, with ten group winners booking places in July’s final tournament. Every country played two matches each (1-vs-1) against the other nations in their group; points from both matches were added to the group table.
The ten runners-up took part in a play-off tournament to determine the other six finalists. The contenders were split into two groups of five, with the top three advancing from each.
What prize money is on offer?
A total of €100,000 in cash prizes will be split between all the finalists, including €40,000 for the winners.
