Previous UEFA Nations League Tournaments

Below is a list of previous UEFA Nations League group phase and finals, containing stadiums guides, fixtures and statistics.


The first ever Nations League was initially met with skepticism as another UEFA vanity project, however many nations and fans were pleasantly surprised at how much better the level of football was compared to international friendlies.  Portugal, Netherlands, England and Switzerland each won their League A groups for a place in the inaugural finals in June 2019.  The first trophy was won by hosts Portugal.


The second Nations League was even more of a success than the first, especially the finals played in Italy that saw 13 goals in 4 games before France were crowned the winners.  The finals were played later in October due to Euro 2020 being rescheduled to 2021 and this was to the advantage of the NL with players fresher and with cooler temperatures allowing faster games.  Italy were hosts but lost a 37 match unbeaten run losing 2-1 to Spain in the semi-final while France dramatically overcame Belgium 3-2 despite being 2-0 down at half-time.  France won the final 2-1 against Spain, again coming from behind, to win at the San Siro.
