Qualifying for 2014 follows exactly the same format as 2010. There will be eight groups of six teams and one group of five.
Each group winner qualifies automatically, with the eight best runners-up facing a play-off to qualify. The record of the team finishing in sixth place in groups 1-8 will be discounted to determine the best runners-up.
The qualifiers begin in September 2012 and run through to October 2013.
