UEFA Nations League is UEFA’s newest national-team competition and is entering its second edition.
This national-team competition replaces friendlies with competitive matches, allowing nations to play against equally ranked teams.
The 55 European national teams are divided into four leagues based on the 2018–19 Nations League overall ranking. Leagues A, B and C feature 16 teams each while there are seven teams in League D.
The four group winners of the top-ranked League A qualify for the UEFA Nations League Finals in June 2021. The knockout tournament will be hosted by one of the quartets. For the remaining sides, there is promotion and relegation to play for.
Portugal beat the Netherlands 1-0 in the inaugural 2018/19 UEFA Nations League final in Porto on 9 June 2019.
“We are very excited to air UEFA Nations League. As Euro 2020 has been postponed, it will be the only national team event this year. All European football stars will be there and we can expect a great football show,” said Kristen Miao, StarTimes Sports Director.
