All the information about the Azzurri team and its participation in the UEFA Nations League 2018/19
UEFA NATIONS LEAGUE 2018/19
UEFA, the European Football Confederation, will be organizing the UEFA Nations League, a competition which will see all 55 UEFA's associations members' national teams divided into a series of divisions based upon a ranking system formulated by using their recent results, where they would be promoted and relegated to other divisions according to their results within the group. The competition would take place on dates on the International match calendar that are currently allocated for international friendlies and would not affect the FIFA World Cup or UEFA European Championship qualifications, although the competition's final placing can replace any play-offs needed for qualification for these tournaments.
All 55 UEFA national teams will be divided into four divisions (called Leagues): 12 teams in League A, 12 teams in League B, 15 teams in League C, and 16 teams in League D. In each division, four groups are formed composed of three or four teams in each group, with all teams in each group playing each other both home and away. These matches will be played in the September - November period.
The following June, the winners of the four groups in the top division, League A, will go on to play in the Nations League Finals hosted in one European nation, two semi-finals, one 3/4 place final and one final to decide which team becomes the UEFA Nations League champion.
Teams will also be promoted and relegated to a higher or lower division. Each group winner (there are four groups in each division) is automatically promoted to the next higher division for the next tournament, whilst each team placing last in its group is automatically relegated to the next lower division.

The UEFA Nations League Trophy is inspired from the logo of the competition - the flag, representing all the 55 UEFA members national associations, elegantly wrapped around a flag pole. It is entirely made of sterling silver and on the inside has the colourful competition logo, thus reflecting on the silver surface. On the outside it has the same logo engraved in linear format, the logo of UEFA and the words 'UEFA Nations League'. The trophy weighs 7.5kg, is 71cm tall, was designed by the Portuguese branch of the international company Young & Rubicom Branding (Y&R) and was manufactured by the Italian company IACO Group.
