The UEFA Executive Committee voted for the host in a secret ballot, with only a simple majority required to determine the host. In the event of a tie, the UEFA President would cast the decisive vote. Of the twenty members of the Executive Committee, two were ineligible to vote and one was absent, leaving a total of seventeen voting members.
As hosts, Germany qualified automatically, with the 23 remaining spots to be determined through qualification.
The qualifying draw has been expected to take place in December 2022.
