It was not created by DC, nor is it the next movie of the Avengers. The League of Nations is the new creation of FIFA to make us think and that we do not fall asleep during international friendly matches. It will be a football championship in which Batman will not appear, It will be played by the national teams belonging to the UEFA, that by the way has more members than the ONU itself. The tournament will be held during FIFA’s international dates, it will replace the boring matches, also it will make the players go out for a run and it will be played every 2 years.
In the tournament will play 55 selections that will be divided into four divisions taking into account their coefficient in the FIFA ranking. Division A and B will have 12 selections, division C with 15 and division D with 16. Division A being the teams with the best ranking and D the worst positioned in the ranking.
These divisions will be divided into four groups, where the teams -selected after a draw- will play matches back and forth between them. The four group winners of divisions B, C and D will gain promotion to the top division, while those of A will move to the play-off round to determine a champion. In turn, the 16 group winners will obtain the right to participate in a round of playoffs to give a qualified to the European Championship by division. Finally, the worst four of each group from the first to the third division will be downgraded.
With this new sophisticated and complicated format, FIFA looks to give opportunities for countries that have never qualified in a European Championship in the usual format, I still do not know why but that only ensures one thing, we will see monumental goals in the next European Championship.
