European Women Championship 2009

Finland qualified as hosts of Final Tournament.

The two categories are abolished.  Instead there is a preliminary
round with 20 countries, divided into 5 groups of 4, from which 
the 5 group winners qualify for the actual qualifying stage, together 
with 25 countries exempted from the preliminary round.  The actual
qualifying stage is organised as 6 groups from 5, with the 6 groups
winners advancing directly while the 6 runners-up and 4 best 3rd-placed
teams enter a home/away playoff for 5 more places.
