Tournament rules –
In leagues A, B and C, 16 teams will play, which will be divided into four quartets. The remaining seven teams will play in League D, where they will be divided into two groups: one with four and one with three. All teams will face each opponent in their group match at home and away from June to September 2022. Four of the six rounds will take place in June due to the postponement of the final stage of the 2022 World Cup for the winter.
The four Group A winners will qualify for the UEFA Nations League finals in June 2023. The winners of the remaining groups will receive a status upgrade, that is, they will play in the League of Nations 2024/25 in a league higher. The fourth-placed teams in leagues A and B will be relegated to a lower league.
The fourth-finishing teams in League C will play play-offs in March 2024. The two losers will be relegated to League D.
