The UEFA Nations League is a football tournament involving senior men's nationals teams from Europe and is to be held every two years. The first edition of the tournament began in September 2018.
As it's name suggests, the UEFA Nations League is a tournament that involves elements of league play, including promotion and relegation between Leagues A, B, C and D. The matches are played during international breaks, mainly when friendlies would have otherwise been scheduled.
