Below is the schedule for the League of Nations
All 55 UEFA national teams will take part in the competition. After the end of the first draw (2019/20), UEFA decided to introduce a new format for the League of Nations from the 2020/2021 season. Leagues A, B and C began to include 16 teams each, League D - 7 teams. The reallocation by league was based on the overall ranking in the League of Nations 2018/2019. Thus, the increase in League A from 12 to 16 teams was due to the fact that four national teams remained in this league: Germany, Iceland, Poland and Croatia, which took the last 3rd places in the groups of League A in the previous game and, in accordance with the previous position, should were relegated to League B. Participants will be divided into groups of 4 teams (with the exception of one group of League D, where there will be 3 teams).
The draw for the group stage was also held on 3 March 2020.
