Northern Ireland will stage the UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship between 8 and 20 August. This is the 16th edition of the eight-team tournament.
Northern Ireland qualified as hosts, with the other seven teams coming through qualifying. England, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Scotland and Spain all advanced as elite round group winners; holders France took a berth reserved for the best runners-up.
Group A: Northern Ireland (hosts), Germany, Scotland, Spain
Group B: Italy, Netherlands, France, England
Each team plays the other three sides in their group over the course of seven days, with the top two advancing to the semi-finals. The winner of Group A takes on the Group B runner-up, with the winner of Group B up against the Group A runner-up.
The last four also qualify for the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup. As hosts, France are already assured of a place so if they are among the semi-finalists then a play-off will be held between the two sides that finish third in their groups to determine who takes Europe's remaining place.
Group stage: 8, 11, 14 August
Semi-finals (+ play-off if required): 17 August
Final: 20 August

A first for the WU19 EURO – the finals mascot! Designed by schoolgirl Eadie Fallis as part of a nationwide competition. There was another contest to name it, with fans voting online for Sweet Caroline. The 1969 song of the same name by Neil Diamond is a favourite on the terraces in Northern Ireland.
The tournament song, perhaps? Singer-songwriter Triona released 'Days Like These' in June. The video features former Northern Ireland international Ian Stewart and current women's U19 forward Rebecca Bassett. It was filmed at the childhood home of George Best and the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park.
