START DATE: The PA reported the Nations League would begin after the 2018 World Cup and have a "climax of semi-finals and final at a neutral venue, while in the lower divisions there would be a final to decide on promotion and qualification places for the World Cup and European Championships" (PA, 3/26). SKY SPORTS' Bryan Swanson reported UEFA's Congress will "only vote to approve a new competition and will not vote on a format." It "is believed part of the proposal includes European nations winning qualifying places for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar." UEFA sources, however, said that would "require separate approval" from FIFA. UEFA will hold further discussions with European associations about the tournament's format after Thursday's vote (SKY SPORTS, 3/26).
