Team allocation and distributionEdit

The national champions and runners-up, where known, in nations that have participated in the past five years are listed as expected to compete. Some of these teams may choose not to participate. Norway has overtaken Iceland in the UEFA coefficients and thus assured themselves a second entry.

Countries are allocated places according to their UEFA league coefficient for women.[2] A first entry list was posted on 14 June 2012 by the Belgian representative.[3] Not returning since last year is the champion of Luxembourg, for the first time Montenegro sends its champion. Here CH denotes the national champion, RU the national runner-up.
