Scotland’s UEFA Nations League campaign begins against Albania on Monday 10 September, as we aim to top our group in League C.
During the Euro 2016 Qualifiers, the ‘Week of Football’ was introduced which means games are spread out from Thursday to Tuesday, shining the spotlight on more teams as they aimed to reach Russia 2018. This is 'Week of Football' continuing for the UEFA Nations League.
At least 33% of games are played on weekends due to the Week of Football idea, giving fans a better chance to follow the action on television, in the stadiums and through Scottish FA’s official channels.
This is different to what used to happen where associations would arrange the fixtures between themselves, consulting each other to find dates and times that suited both parties.
Now they are scheduled automatically by UEFA.
Kick-off times are set mainly at 5pm (UK time) and 7.45pm (UK time) on Saturdays and Sundays and at 7.45pm (UK time) for Thursdays, Fridays, Mondays and Tuesdays.
In double-header matchweeks, teams will play on Thursday/Sunday, Friday/Monday or Saturday/Tuesday.
