Background Portugal were announced as hosts for UEFA Euro 2004 on 12 October 1999, in Aachen, Germany, beating Spain and the joint bid of Austria and Hungary.

Spain had launched its bid on 8 November 1996, and Austria/Hungary seven months later.

The Draw

The 16 teams qualifying for the 2004 European Championship finals competition were divided into four groups of four teams each for the first round of the final tournament by draw held on 30 November 2003, at the Pavilhao Atlantico, Lisboa, Portugal.  Pursuant to the competition's regulations, UEFA seeded four teams as the heads of the four groups:  Portugal as the host nation, France as the reigning European champion and as the highest ranked team alongside Sweden and the Czech Republic, in UEFA's November 2003 European national team ranking table, which assigned each team a coefficient calculated on the basis of results achieved in the qualifying competitions for the 2002 World Cup and the 2004 European Championship (excluding the playoff matches).
