The purpose of this proposal is to use the UEFA League of Nations to do the European Qualifiers.
It makes no sense to have two distinctive competitions when we could have them together. With this combination of the two competitions, it would make the UEFA League of Nations more important and more competitive.
The League of Nations would become a real competition between nations.
Using the UEFA League of Nations for this achievement, and for UEFA World Cup Qualifiers (another project presented by us), it would make the UEFA League of Nations the most important UEFA completion for national teams. We would have UEFA League of Nations every year, with a Champion every two years, following the need for the qualifications for the EURO or World Cup. That would be synonymous of significantly improving television rights and sponsor earnings.
The UEFA Nations League would have 3 leagues (A, B and C). The leagues A and B would have 4 teams in each group. The league C would have three groups with six and one with five teams.
Depending on the UEFA League Nations classification the teams would have secured a seat in the Euro or would have the possibility to dispute European Qualifiers.
With this new UEFA League of Nations format, being in League A and B would be almost a guarantee of European Qualifiers dispute. All teams would fight to be in the leagues A and B, making UEFA League of Nations more challenging and interesting. A possible relegation to League C may mean a farewell to the Euro.
The top two in each group in League A and the top-ranked in each group in League B would have assured their presence in Euro. It seems a fair prize for its performance.
The League C would be able to promote to League B the top two in each group. In addition, the first classified of each group would ensure the European Qualifiers dispute. The second-placed in each group would have to play a preliminary round with the latest classifieds from League B. This situation seems fair and balanced, we are talking about the last ones of the group B and the second classified of the league C (leagues last level).
Only 15 teams would not participate in the European Qualifiers, due their participation in the UEFA League of Nations.
Please see the pages with the individual explanations of each league and qualifications for Euro (bar above).
