UEFA Nations League 2022/23 Fixtures: All Dates For League A Plus Format Info And Sorting Rules

The third edition of the UEFA Nations League begins this June and the fixture list is a busy one.

Most nations involved are playing four games in 11 days this summer, before the group stage concludes during the September international break.

UEFA Nations League Format

The format remains the same as the previous edition.

The top sixteen teams have been drawn into four groups - A1, A2, A3 and A4.

Within those groups each nation will play each other twice - home and away - meaning that there are six rounds of fixtures.

At the end of those fixtures, the team at the bottom of each group will be relegated to League B.

The four League A teams that finish top of their groups will qualify for the Nations League Finals - a mini-tournament that will take place between June 14 and June 18 in 2023.

The Nations League Finals will be hosted by one of the nations involved and will consist of two single-leg semi-finals and a final.

Because Euro 2024 qualifiers are also due to take place in June 2023, all four teams who reach the Nations League Finals will be guaranteed a five-team group in Euro 2024 qualifying - rather than a group of six - so that their schedules remain manageable.

UEFA Nations League Sorting Rules

If multiple teams end the league phase level on points then their head-to-head record will be used to separate them.

If they still remain tied, overall goal difference will be used.

The next steps if needed would be most goals scored, followed by most away goals scored, followed by most wins, then most away wins.

Should the teams remain tied after all of these criteria, then the team with the superior disciplinary record would finish higher.
