How does the Nations League work?

The 55 participating nations were split into four Leagues according to their positions in the UEFA National Team Coefficient rankings. Within each League, teams were subdivided into two pots of four. 

The teams in each League will play each other home and away with the four group winners of League A qualifying for the UEFA Nations League Finals in June 2021. These Finals will feature semi-finals, a third-place match and the final. The group winners in Leagues B, C and D gain promotion and those who finish bottom of the groups in Leagues A and B will be relegated. 

The Nations League does not offer any guaranteed 2022 World Cup places, whereas the previous version from 2018-2019 provided four EURO 2020 spots. Two teams could still qualify for Qatar via the Nations League as two of the 12 World Cup play-off places are available via the Nations League. 

UEFA will confirm the UEFA Nations League fixtures and kick-off times in the coming weeks however the scheduled match weeks are in September, October and November 2020. The Finals will take place in June 2021 with the location and venues to be confirmed by UEFA. 


What does this mean for England fans?

Ticket details for each of England's Nations League matches will be announced in due course. Tickets to England's away fixtures will only be available to members of the England Supporters Travel Club. 

Please be bear in mind that the 2020-2021 Nations League fixtures will take place after the 2018-2020 membership has expired, which means that if you're an existing member of the Travel Club, you'll need to renew your membership in order to be eligible to apply for away match tickets and receive discounts off home match tickets.

Members of the free England Supporters Club will still be eligible for tickets to Nations League home fixtures, but if you wish to attend any of the away matches and the Finals next summer (should England qualify), you'll need to join the 2020-2022 England Supporters Travel Club membership. 

The ticket policy for England away matches is one per Travel Club member so if you wish to attend with friends and family, they'll need to be members too.

The 2020-2022 membership will be launching in the next few months so please keep an eye on your emails and the England Supporters Club website for more information.
