What a joke we are in pot C with some minnows like Albania, Israel and Lithuania, while teams that couldn't even make playoffs like Turkey, Bosnia and Austria are in B. 

That’s great for us, will take it!

I think this system will be awesome

Just like in FIBA World Cup, the qualifying system for European countries is spot on!

no wrong, winners of each league do qualify for the actualy tournament. hence you here people complaining about the likes of luxembourg and kosovo having the chance to reach the euros through this system. we'll have to see the draw for the actual qualifiers but i think this system will offer us a better chance. especially when you think that greece will be a pot 3 team again for the qualification for the european championship which means we'll have a tough draw. potential opponents for the euro qualifiers;

pot1; germany, portugal, belgium, spain, france, england, switzerland, italy, poland, iceland

pot2; croatia, netherlands, austria, wales, russia, slovakia, sweden, ukraine, ireland, bosnia

pot3; nothern ireland, denmark, czech republic, turkey, hungary, romania, scotland, slovenia, greece, serbia

pot4; albania, norway, montenegro, israel, bulgaria, finland, cyprus, estonia, lithuania, azerbaijan

pot5; vardarska, belarus, georgia, armenia, latvia, faroes, luxembourg, kazakhstan, moldova, liechtenstein

pot6; malta, andorra, kosovo, san marino, gibraltar

what would be great imo

iceland/poland/switzerland

slovakia/bosnia/russia

greece

lithuania/azerbaijan/cyprus

armenia/latvia/moldova

san marino/gibraltar/andorra

Just reading through the format, the only way to gain direct qualification into Euro 2020 is through the qualifiers, which will begin in march 2019. The nations league will only provide playoff spots to the winners of their respective sections. Unless the winners of the nations league group qualify automatically through the qualifiers, the playoff spot would then go to the next best rank side in the nations league.

 Κάθε "πρωτάθλημα-λίγκα" θα έχει το δικό της Final-4 (με τους νικητές των ομίλων σε ημιτελικούς και τελικό) ώστε να προκύπτει μία θέση από έκαστο "δρόμο". Ακόμη δηλαδή και μια ομάδα από τις ανίσχυρες χώρες του τελευταίου γκρουπ, μπορεί να βρεθεί σε τελική φάση EURO.

@Boxou Only the group winners from League A play-off in a final 4 system. The other league winners, gain promotion.
Everywhere I read has the nations league winners going into a PLAYOFF SYSTEM to reach the finals of Euro 2020. So yes you can qualify via the nations league but there will be another play-off round post traditional qualifiers

To recap, I believe this is how the system works.... Each team is put into a category, A, B, C or D, depending on their rankings.  Then the teams are split into 4 groups.  The team the finishes first in the group gains two things, 1) promotion to the next category 2) entry into the playoff pool within your category.  The team that finishes last gets relegated into the next category.  The winner for the four team play-off gets the entry into the Euro.  The winner of the play-off of category A wins the league of nations.

What you guys fail to understand is that the playoffs are related with the AFOREMENTIONED league. Which practically means EACH league will produce at least one Euro 202 participant. The so called playoffs you are bragging about will be between the best 4 teams of each league with the eventual winners gaining a ticket to the Euros, be it LEAGUE A or LEAGUE D.......

Also this means that someone from League D will make it to the Euro finals.

UEFA Rank 40 and below

      Οι πιθανοί αντίπαλοι του Ολυμπιακού στα προκριματικά
       

       
      Οι πιθανοί αντίπαλοι στον τρίτο προκριματικό είναι οι εξής με τα τωρινά δεδομένα: Χάποελ Μπερ Σεβά (Ισραήλ), Αστάνα (Καζακστάν), Παρτιζάν (Σερβία), Ριέκα (Κροατία), Ρόζενμποργκ (Νορβηγία), Σλάβια Πράγας (Τσεχία), Χαφναρφιόρντουρ (Ισλανδία), Βιτορούλ (Ρουμανία), Ζίλινα (Σλοβακία), Ζαλγκίρις (Λιθουανία) 

      Οι πιθανοί αντίπαλοι στα play offs είναι οι εξής με τα τωρινά δεδομένα: ΑΠΟΕΛ (Κύπρος), Μάλμε (Σουηδία), Μπάτε Μπορίσοφ (Λευκορωσία), Μάριμπορ (Σλοβενία), Καραμπάχ (Αζερμπαϊτζάν). 

      Ο Ολυμπιακός φέτος (όπως και πέρυσι) θα έχει την υψηλότερη βαθμολογία σε αυτούς τους δύο προκριματικούς, καθώς έχει συγκεντρώσει την υψηλότερη βαθμολογία (64.580) την τελευταία πενταετία, ενώ δεύτερη (και αρκετά πίσω του) είναι η Σέλτικ με 42.785 βαθμούς.

      Euro 2016 found the owner country,
      At the Final Italy, Turkey and France raced to get the champhionship. Turkey and France made a good presentation, Sarkosy and Gul were there too. Specially Turkey worked too much to have this Champhionsip that Turkey trying to have it for last 3 competitions.
      At the Final Turkey and Frace raced and France got it with 1 vote differance...
      According to the Press UEFA Major Platini worked like an activist of France he intoduced Sarkosy and Zidane to the delegates one by one...Didn't do the same for Abdullah Gull and Turkish Side.
      Turkey was thinking to be a different destination and new stadiums and going on projects will be advantage but it didn't happen. Lobby activities won again.
      Hope It will be nice Champhionship for football and fairplay... IMO France will be very nice to have the football atmosphere with beautifull Stadiums but i think to make it more international, has to give it to different destinations anymore. Turkey would do it easly with new stadiums.

      Seems we will get either Ajax,  Club Brugge or Monaco if we secure the CL spot this year.
