Name change: On 13 April 2000, the UEFA Executive Committee endorsed a proposal made by the Youth Committee to re-name then competition in order to reflect reality. A few years ago, FIFA changed the cut-off date for age-limit competitions from 1 August to 1 January, which means that players are up to seven months older. This means that Under-18 players can be over 19 by the time they reach the final phase of the European Under-18 Championship. Therefore, for greater coherency, UEFA renamed the Under-18 competition as the European Under-19 Championship.
