General performances

Performances of host countries

Map of countries' best results

From 1959 to 1982, the host qualified directly to the final round, thus bypassing the preliminary round (group stages). As a result, the host's final rank would no worse than the number of teams in the final round (between six to eight); however from 1986 the host was made to compete in the preliminary round.

However, the success rate of hosts winning the tournament is rather low (19%, 3 of 16), as compared to the FIFA World Cup's success rate of 32% (6 of 19); furthermore, no host has won the championship since Yugoslavia won in 1970, and only one host since then has won any type of medal (Turkey with a silver medal in 2010).
