How does the competition work?

UEFA’s newest national-team competition, the UEFA Nations League was was inaugurated in the 2018/19 season to replace friendlies with competitive matches, allowing nations to play against equally-ranked teams.

A new league structure was introduced after the first edition, comprising 16 teams in Leagues A, B and C and seven teams in League D. The four group winners of the top-ranked League A qualify for the UEFA Nations League Finals.

The group winners in Leagues B, C and D will gain promotion. Those who finish bottom of the groups in Leagues A and B will be relegated. Two League C teams will be relegated to League D for the third edition of the competition in 2022/23. Those two teams are determined by play-offs (home and away) between the four fourth-ranked teams from each League C group.

The four group winners of League A qualify for the UEFA Nations League finals. The knockout tournament will be hosted by one of the quartet.
