Group 3 nations:
Czech Republic, Armenia, Montenegro, Andorra and Wales.
Group matches can start in March 2011.
"It is a very tough group, but I am sure that we can stand a good chance of qualifying. I am pleased that we did not have a six team group, and we have experience of playing in some of these countries recently at different age levels.
Always an exciting time, we now need to show that the next generation of Wales players can go that extra step to a finals." - Wales Intermediate teams manager, Brian Flynn.
