2024-25 UEFA Nations League

(Source: UEFA)

What changes have been made for the 2024/25 Nations League?

The UEFA Nations League will be expanded with a new knockout round to be played in March 2025, thereby creating continuity between the group phase ending in November and the finals played in June.

The League A group winners and runners-up will participate in home-and-away quarter-finals, with the winners of these ties qualifying for the Final Four.

The fourth-placed teams in Leagues A and B are automatically relegated to League B and C respectively. The two lowest-ranked fourth-placed teams in League C, meanwhile, are relegated to League D.

The four group winners in Leagues B and C, as well as the two group winners in League D, are automatically promoted to Leagues A, B and C respectively.

The third-ranked teams of League A and the runners-up of League B, as well as the third-ranked teams of League B and the runners-up of League C, will play a home-and-away promotion/ relegation play-off.

There will also be play-offs between the two best-ranked fourth-placed teams from League C and the two runners-up from League D.

The expansion of the UEFA Nations League into the International Match Calendar window of March will only concern a selected number of teams and the remaining teams will already be available to start the European Qualifiers.

How will the 2024/25 UEFA Nations League Finals work?

Semi-finals will take place on Wednesday 4th and Thursday 5th June 2025. The winners advance to the final on Sunday 8th June, while the two beaten semi-finalists will contest the match for third place earlier the same day.
