U-19: Ukraine learns the names of its contenders in League A of the reformed 2022 European Championship

Сьогодні у штаб-квартирі УЄФА відбулося жеребкування відбірного турніру Євро-2022 серед юнаків до 19-ти років, що проходитиме в новому форматі. 

Нагадаємо, згідно з рішенням УЄФА чемпіонати Європи 2022-го і 2023 років у категорії U-19 змінять турніри, що матимуть дворічний цикл — 2020—2022 і 2021—2023. Вони також будуть завершуватися фінальною стадією за участю восьми збірних. Таким чином, їхній формат стане схожим на формат Ліги націй УЄФА.

У новому форматі всіх учасників розіграшу 2020—2022 років (у тому числі й господаря фінальної стадії, Словаччину) розподілили по трьох лігах (A, B і C) на підставі tables of U-19 coefficients, made on the basis of the performances in the tournament from season 2015/2016 to season 2018/2019. The wards of Alexander Petrakov, who are currently a national team U-17 (players born in 2003), потрапили до Ліги А разом зі ще 19-ма командами, які розподілили на два кошики для жеребкування (синьо-жовті перебували в кошику 1).
