UEFA Euro 1992 qualifying

The qualifying competition for UEFA Euro 1992 was a series of parallel association football competitions to be held over 1990 and 1991 to decide the qualifiers for UEFA Euro 1992, to be held in Sweden. The draw for the qualifying rounds was held on 2 February 1990.

There were a total of seven groups. At the conclusion of qualifying, the team at the top of each group qualified for the final tournament, to join the hosts in completing the eight participants. This was the final time the European Championship only featured eight teams, as the competition was expanded to 16 for the 1996 event.

The draw took place on 2 February 1990. Sweden qualified automatically as hosts of the competition. 34 teams entered the draw, but East Germany withdrew later due to its abolition as a result of German reunification on 3 October 1990; The new unified German team took over the fixtures of West Germany, while those of East Germany were scratched.

The qualifiers, consisting of 33 teams divided into seven groups; two of four teams and five of five teams, were played in 1990 and 1991. Each group winner progressed to the finals.
