According to a decision of the UEFA Executive Committee on May 2, 2016, each team was allowed to make a fourth substitution at this tournament in overtime.
On January 26, 2015, the Executive Committee of the UEFA European Association awarded Georgia the contract to host the 2017 European Under-19 Championship. UEFA announced the decision after an Executive Committee meeting in Nyon . Georgia was the first to host a UEFA youth competition.
The qualification for the tournament took place in two stages. The first qualifying round was followed by a second round, called the elite round . Georgia was directly qualified to host.
The draw for the first round took place on December 3, 2015 in Nyon . Spain received a bye for the elite round in advance. The remaining 52 participants were divided into 13 groups of four teams. The group first and second as well as the best group third, for whose determination only the games against the first two group counted, reached the elite round in spring 2017. Germany met Ireland in group 4, which played in Albania from October 6th to 11th, 2016 and Gibraltar. Austria had to travel to Lithuania and met Bosnia and Herzegovina and Azerbaijan in Group 5 from October 4 to 9, 2016. Switzerland met Italy and Hungary in Group 7 from November 10th to 15th in Armenia. Both Germany and Austria prevailed as group winners with three wins in three games and qualified for the elite round, but Switzerland had to admit defeat to the Bulgarians (1: 2) after a strong game against Armenia (4: 0) A draw against Italy was only enough for third place, which meant the end.
In the elite round, the remaining teams were divided into seven groups of four teams. Each group played a mini-tournament in one country. The seven group winners of the elite round qualify for the final round. The elite round took place from March 22nd to 28th, 2017.
The draw resulted in the following groups (order according to final placement):
|Group 1||Group 2||Group 3||Group 4||Group 5||Group 6||Group 7|
|Netherlands 1||Germany 1||England 1||Portugal 1||Bulgaria||Czech Republic 1||Sweden|
|Greece||Serbia||Spain||Croatia||Bosnia a. Herzegovina||Hungary||Ireland|
The German selection of coach Frank Kramer prevailed in group 2 with three wins from three games as group winners and thus qualified for the final round. After a last-minute win in the first game against Cyprus, when the winning goal by Etienne Amenyido only fell in the third minute of stoppage time, there were two sovereign victories against the selections from Serbia (2-0) and Slovakia (4-0) . The selection of Austria played in group 6 against the teams from the Czech Republic, Hungary and Scotland. After a win against the Scottish team (3: 0), two clear defeats against Hungary (1: 3) and the Czech Republic (0: 3) followed. With this record, Austria landed in third place and was therefore unable to qualify for the final round.
Host Georgia was automatically seeded for the finals. Thus there were seven more places that were awarded to the seven group winners of the elite round. The full field of participants was determined in March 2017. This was followed by the official draw for the finals of the U-19 Euro 2017.

The preliminary round was held in two groups of four teams each. The two group winners and runners-up qualified for the semifinals.
If two or more teams in the same group showed the same number of points at the end of the group matches, the placement was determined according to the following criteria in this order:
- a. higher number of points from direct encounters between the teams in question;
- b. better goal difference from the direct encounters between the teams in question;
- c. higher number of goals scored from direct encounters between the teams in question;
- d. if, after applying criteria a) to c), several teams still have the same rank, criteria a) to c) are reapplied, but only to the matches between the teams in question, in order to determine their final rankings. If this procedure does not lead to a decision, criteria e) to h) are applied;
- e. better goal difference from all group games;
- f. higher number of goals scored from all group games;
- G. lower total number of penalty points based on the yellow and red cards received in all group matches (red card = 3 points, yellow card = 1 point, expulsion after two yellow cards in one game = 3 points);
- H. Drawing of lots.
If two teams met in the final group match with the same number of points, goal difference and number of goals, and the game in question ended in a draw, the final placement of the two teams will be determined by penalty shoot-out, provided that no other team in the same group has reached the end all group matches have achieved the same number of points. If more than two teams had the same number of points, the criteria above were applied.
