  9. higher position in the overall UEFA Nations League phase rankings (see Paragraph 20.01 and Annex C).


To rank the teams in League C, in case League C is composed of different sized groups, the results against the fourth-placed team are not taken into account for the purposes of comparing teams placed first, second and third in their respective group.

  1. The 16 League A teams are ranked 1st to 16th according to their league rankings.

  2. The 16 League B teams are ranked 17th to 32nd according to their league rankings.

  3. The League C teams are ranked 33rd onwards according to their league rankings.
