The Germany women’s national team will play Denmark, Iceland and Wales in the first-ever UEFA Women’s Nations League 2023/2024 in Group 3 of National League A, the highest of three leagues. The draw took place at UEFA’s headquarters in the Swiss city of Nyon yesterday, May 2. Alongside the title itself, there is also an added incentive: Both finalists will also qualify alongside hosts France for the Olympics in 2024. If ‘Les Bleues’ reach the final then the third-placed team will qualify.
Germany Women’s head coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg said, “With Denmark, Iceland and Wales, we have an exciting group in the Nations League ahead of us. All three teams stand out with their very physical way of playing, especially Wales and Iceland. We recently played Denmark in the Euros. Iceland are a team that have developed a lot in the past few years. Lots of their players are at top clubs these days. Wales will also be an exciting task that we will prepare well for. We are looking forward to playing three different and very interesting teams.”
The group games of this first-ever tournament will be completed in three windows: matchdays one and two from September 20-26, 2023, matchdays three and four from October 25-31, 2023 and matchdays five and six from November 29 until December 5, 2023.
The four group winners from League A go into a knockout round. The finals and promotion and relegation games are scheduled for February 21-28, 2024. Next season, the teams in the UEFA Women’s Nations League will also be playing for qualification to UEFA Women’s EURO 2025 in Switzerland.
