UEFA approve new ‘Nations League’ competition

UEFA’s approved the creation of a “Nations League” competition to start in September 2018.


It’ll replace most international friendlies, and feed into qualifying play-offs for the 2020 Euro Championship.


Although the tournament format is yet to be finalised, it foresees 54 teams ranked in four divisions playing September to November 2018.


Twelve top-ranked sides would play in four three-team groups in Division A.


Those group winners advance to a finals tournament to be held in the summer.
