Malta has been drawn in Group E along with Serbia, runners-up in last year’s inaugural eEuropean Championship, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Russia and Armenia. Following a series of qualifying events within Malta’s PES community, Neil Abela, Sean Desira, Matthew Tonna and Osbert Ellul Hili earned the right to represent Malta in the eEURO 2021 qualifiers.

The matches will be contested across four matchdays:
