What will be the Final Four?

Final Four is the end of the Nations League. This will take place in June 2019 and the group winners from League A against each other. There is only one-game semi-final stage followed by the final.

The winner will be called as UEFA Nations League champion.

The Final Four tournament will only be played in odd years, meaning that in years when there is no a World Cup or European Championships, there will be a Nations League winner.

How will the EUFA Nations League affect European Qualifiers?

Euro qualifiers for 2020 will start in March 2019, with double headers in the March, June, September, October and November international breaks.

Teams will be divided into five groups of five teams and five groups of six teams. There will be 10 matchdays in total - the same number as now.

The top two teams from the 10 groups qualify automatically for the Euros, while four more places at the finals will be awarded to play-off winners. Sixteen national teams will compete in the play-offs.

Each Nations League league gets four play-off spots. If the winner of a group has already qualified for the Euros, the next best team which has not qualified goes into the play-offs.

Those sixteen teams will go into four groups, with the top team going to the Euros. The four teams play two one-off semi-finals and one one-off final to determine play-off winners.

So, if one of the Home Nations fails to qualify the traditional way, each league has a path of its own to the finals.

The UEFA Nations League rankings will also determine the composition of draw pots for subsequent European Qualifiers.

UEFA EURO 2020 play-offs: March 26-31, 2020

What are the benefits?

"The UEFA Nations League creates more meaningful and competitive matches for teams and a dedicated calendar and structure for national team football," according to  UEFA, who believe the new format addresses concerns national associations raised about friendlies no longer providing adequate competition.

As well as the appeal of being named National League winner after the Final Four showpiece event for top teams, weaker teams will have better opportunities to qualify for European Championships - the bottom 16 in the rankings are now guaranteed one of the 24 qualifying spots.

Weaker teams will also face teams of a similar level - so there will be fewer thrashings and more meaningful games for fans.
