The UEFA Nations League represents a captivating tournament that brings joy and opportunities to European national teams. In this article, we will explore League D - the lowest level of competition, yet a platform for the development and growth of lesser-known footballing nations.


The UEFA Nations League was first introduced in 2018 to enhance the quality and significance of friendly matches between European national teams. League D is the lowest tier of the tournament, designed for national teams in the early stages of development.


League D consists of 16 participants divided into 4 groups of 4 teams each. The teams in League D are selected based on their UEFA coefficient. Within each group, the teams compete in a round-robin format, playing two matches against each of the other teams in their group.

At the end of the group stage, the winners of the League D groups earn the opportunity to advance to the next level and compete against teams from League C. Meanwhile, the teams that finish last in their groups risk relegation to the lower level, competing against teams from League E.


League D features 16 teams representing the most sparsely populated and lesser-known footballing nations in Europe. They have the chance to showcase their potential and develop on the international stage, attracting attention to their national teams and football in their respective countries.
