 England in the European Championship 2000 - Preliminary Competition
UEFA divided the 49 teams seeking to qualify for the 2000 European Championship finals into nine groups at the preliminary draw held in Ghent, Belgium on January 18, 1998.
Before the draw, UEFA seeded the teams into five tiers using its late 1997 European national team ranking table, which assigned each team a coefficient calculated from results in the qualifying competitions for the 1996 European Championship and the 1998 World Cup.
Moreover, UEFA made Germany the No. 1 seed although it was ranked 5th, presumably because of its fine record in the European Championship, and thus all teams with rankings higher than Germany were seeded a place lower than their ranking.

 WIPO Domain Name Decision: D2000-0230
a) Complainants claim that EURO 2000 (as it was previously the case for EURO 1996 and the names of previous European Championships) is a trademark identifying the European soccer championship to be held in the year 2000, and is recognized as such by a majority of consumers.
Respondent claims that EURO 2000 is recognized as a sign identifying the European soccer championship organized by UEFA in the year 2000 only by a "much smaller public" than the general one, since "a lot of people do not care for soccer at all".
The Euro 2000 soccer event was planned on or before January 1994 (not to mention that it was not a difficult guess that it would have been planned and announced, given that UEFA European soccer championships are organized every four years and are identified by the name "Euro" followed by the year).
