Pot 1: Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Turkey
Pot 2: Belgium, Estonia, Faroe Islands, Finland, Greece, Kosovo, Romania, Slovakia
Pot 3: Cyprus, Georgia, Luxembourg

EHF EURO 2022 Qualification continued with the Relegation Round, in which six sides will compete in a two-legged playoff to reach Qualification Round 2.

Qualification Phase 1 winners Luxembourg and Cyprus are joined in Pot 1 alongside IHF Emerging Nations Championship 2019 winners Georgia.

Pot 2 features the three lowest ranked sides from EHF EURO 2020 Qualification Phase 2, Belgium, Estonia and Finland.
