UEFA awards 2023 Nations League finals to Netherlands

The event's semi-finals will take place on June 14 and 15, and the third-place match and final will be on June 18.

The European football’s governing body, UEFA has announced that the 2023 Nations League finals will be held in the Netherlands.

The Dutch Football Association (KNVB) has chosen Rotterdam (Stadion Feijenoord) and Enschede (FC Twente Stadion) to host the third season of the premier competition. The event’s semi-finals will take place on June 14 and 15, and the third-place match and final will be on June 18.

The Netherlands will be merged in the Nations League finals with Croatia, Italy, and Spain. All the countries had been in line to organise after winning their qualifying group.

Belgium, Poland, the Netherlands, and Wales also expressed a desire in organising the finals in 2022-23 in April. The four nations were in the same Nations League group for 2022-23, and it seemed probable that the group winner would be chosen to host the finals. The host nation was one of the four teams fighting in the first two editions of the finals.

The Nations League was introduced by UEFA in 2018, with Portugal staging the first-ever finals in June 2019, vanquishing the Netherlands in the final to become the first-ever winner. The 2020-21 Nations League finals were hosted in Italy last October. France won its first title after defeating Spain in the final at Milan’s Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

The Hungarian Football Federation has also been granted the 2023 Women’s Futsal Euro by the UEFA Executive Committee. The fixtures will take place between March 16 and 19 at Debrecen’s Fönix Arena.
