I'd imagine UEFA's Executive Committee meeting on 17 June will confirm if both the playoff and Nations League will go ahead in 2020. What do you think they'll decide lads?

Thought the meeting to decide this was to take place on the 27th of May?

They re-scheduled it.

Can't imagine anything with fans in 2020 unfortunately. 

Would be great to just have them on and at least we would have a game to look forward to even if its behind closed doors.

I'd say we'll be doing well to be back at games for the March window. Long couple of months to come.

Let's hope it's played behind closed doors as might improve our chances seen as we are the away team.

Interesting twitter thread on Nations League. Likely to be no September international break but all still up in the air

Yeah think it was flagged previously that they were likely to play the games in two blocks of 3 in October and November.  Thurs/Sun/Weds etc..

Interesting to see when the Euro 2020 playoffs will be played if that’s the case

I think the September fixtures will go ahead whether it's behind closed doors or not and a month is a long time when trying to estimate what trajectory this virus takes. 

It's probably false optimism but I think there's still a very very slim 10% chance we might be able to attend the match in Sofia if popular tourist destinations like Spain and Italy open up during the next 2 months and there isn't a spike in cases. UEFA may permit attandences. Fingers crossed.

September is highly unlikely to go ahead, simply because they have to redo the domestic fixture lists. Looks like most leagues are only going to kick off around the 2nd week of September after the summer breaks so September internationals will be out

The problem really lies with our euro2020/1 playoff it's all very well to cancel the September International window and making the October and November games trebble headers but where do you fit the play off games in. The next Window is March 2021 and there are world cup qualifiers down for those dates.

Plus there's meant to be world cup 2022 qualifiers in June 2021 when the re-scheduled Euros are now due to take place. That's quite a backlog for UEFA to sort out if they're gonna keep the NL.

That's a good point. Forgot about the start of the season.

I'll hazard a guess that the playoff will go ahead behind closed doors, and the Nation's League won't go ahead at all. Reasons: Backlog, dates, future events and priority.

People seem to be forgetting that the nations league is part of wc qualifying it will go ahead.

I think the fact the world Cup isn't until the winter of 2022 is a big help too qualifying albeit not great for fans and travel plans can go up until June /Sept 2022 if needs be

It would take about ten minutes to remove the NL from World Cup qualifying! I don't think that will have any major bearing on whether it is played or not. The most likely scenario is certainly the post above. Next season is going to be well behind schedule as it is.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

That is my fear. International games may need to be sacrificed given the scheduling pressures. Hoping this doesn't do longer term damage to the status of the international game.

Nations league is a load of sh*te anyway and it was brought in by a committee and it can end as quickly by one also.
