Each member of the UEFA Executive Committee entitled to take part in the voting procedure ranks three (3) bidders in order of preference. The preferred bidder is given rank one (1), the second choice is given rank two (2), and the third choice is given rank three (3).
Points are then allocated by the scrutineers based on each voter’s ranking preference in each ballot, starting with one (1) point for the least preferred bidder, two (2) points for the second choice, and five (5) points for the preferred bidder.
A vote is valid if and only if:
a rank between one (1) and three (3) has been attributed to each of the ranked bidders; and
different ranks have been attributed to each of the ranked bidders.
Depending on the number of editions initiated, the bidder(s) that obtain(s) the highest number of valid votes cast is/are selected as the host association(s).
If not all host associations are selected due to a tie in the first round of ballots, a second round of ballots takes place between the tied bidders that received the same highest number of points during the first round of voting.
The bidder(s) that obtain(s) the highest number of points during the second round of ballots is/are selected as the host association(s).
In the event of a tie during the second round of ballots, the chair of the meeting has the casting vote.
