Background
The UEFA Nations League was unanimously adopted at the XXXVIII Ordinary UEFA Congress in Astana on 27 March 2014.

The format for the second UEFA Nations League will again feature promotion and relegation. The 55 European national teams have been divided into four leagues in accordance with UEFA's first Nations League project.

UEFA increased the size of the top three tiers to sixteen countries - meaning each group will have four teams - and decreased the size of the bottom tier to seven. This season's reshuffle means none of the 12 countries relegated will actually have to drop divisions.

League A includes the top-ranked sides, including England, and League D includes the lowest.

Teams will be split into four groups of three, with the group winners then contesting the UEFA Nations League Finals (semi-finals, third-place match and final) in June 2021 to become the UEFA Nations League winners. One host country will be appointed in December 2020 from among the finalist teams.


The draw took place on 3 March 2020 at Beurs van Berlage Conference Centre in Amsterdam, Switzerland. League A was drawn by Luis Figo.
