Spain competed at the European Championship from 2005 to 2013, with the country's best result a ninth place in 2009. Spain recorded four defeats in their previous European Championship matches against their opponents in Pool D, three against Russia and one versus Germany.

Switzerland played at three previous European Championships: 1967 (13th place), 1971 (12th) and 2013 (14th).
