UEFA on Tuesday approved the procedure for the upcoming UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying draw, which will take place in Frankfurt on October 9.

A total of 53 teams will participate in the draw, which will allocate the participants to 10 groups - seven groups of five teams and three groups of six teams, with the top two in each advancing, according to UEFA's official website.

Euro 2024 host nation Germany qualify automatically for the final tournament and therefore do not feature in the draw.

The remaining three places at the 24-team final tournament will be decided via play-offs to be contested in March 2024.

Russia are barred from taking part in Euro 2024, having been suspended from UEFA and FIFA competitions.
