The Republic of Ireland U-19s have been drawn with England, Czech Republic and Norway in next year's UEFA Elite Round.

Dave O’Connell’s team will travel to the Czech Republic for fixtures on 8, 11 and 14 April looking to qualify for the finals tournament in late July.

Seven teams will emerge from the elite round to join hosts Georgia in the finals tournament, running from 21 July to 2 August.

Connell previously guided an U-19's team to the European Championship semi-finals in 2014 and will be hoping to reach another tournament after beating Ukraine and Montenegro already in qualifying.

For the next season, the U-19s are scheduled to go to Greece for their Qualifying Round games, with England and Kosovo also in their group.

The Republic of Ireland Women's Under-17s meanwhile will have home advantage in their bid to top the Elite Round of their UEFA European Championship qualifiers in March next year.

James Scott's team will act as hosts for Group 3 games that will also involve Austria, Denmark and Serbia as the prize of qualifying for the finals tournament in Sweden is put on the line.

The venues for those games will announced in due course, while Scott already knows that his team will travel to Portugal next October to kick off their 2020/21 UEFA Qualifying Round games.
