“The UEFA Executive Committee has approved a new format for the qualification of the Women's Under-19 European Championship. The aim is to allow the development of young elite players. The countries involved have been divided into two leagues (A and B) according to their position in the organisation's coefficient ranking. Portugal was placed in League A.

In the first qualifying round, the groups will dispute mini-tournaments, divided in two leagues (A and B). The winners of each League B tournament will be promoted and the runners-up in the League A tournaments will be relegated.

In the second round, to be held in spring 2022, replacing the Elite Round, the teams that will be in the final phase will be determined. The winners and best second-placed team from the second round will advance to the final round in the Czech Republic.

Following the conclusion of the second qualifying round, the winners of the League B mini-tournaments will be promoted and the runners-up in the League A mini-tournaments will be relegated to the first round of the next edition of the competition.

The new format will ensure greater competitive balance because all teams will play against opponents of a similar level, while all teams will still have the opportunity to qualify for the final round.

It also guarantees a minimum of 5 or 6 official matches per season, played in the existing competitive windows. In addition, hosts of the final phases, by participating in the qualifying phases, will be able to play official matches before the final phase.

This new format will also be implemented in the qualification for the European Women's Under-17 Championship."
