The UEFA Nations League is in full swing and if you’re looking to watch all the games then this is the guide for you.
While the UEFA Nations League certainly isn’t as important as the World Cup and definitely doesn’t have the following that team competitions do like the Champions League it is an extra chance to watch some football.
It isn’t often we get to see our national teams in action and although the UEFA Nations League, if we’re honest, is just friendlies re-branded, they’re definitely worth watching to while away a couple of hours watching football.
Who doesn’t want to watch the likes of Mbappe, Ramos, Kante and Kane all come together?
Your access to watching the UEFA Nations League can vary depending on what country you’re in but there’s a really simple trick that will allow you to watch all the matches online practically free from anywhere in the world.
In this quick guide you’ll find out how.
How to watch the UEFA Nations League free online
Football fans will be excited to know that you can watch England, Spain, Croatia, Germany and all the other countries taking part in the UEFA Nations League.
For this you’ll need to download an app called a ‘VPN‘. A VPN allows you to watch a live stream of the tournament from overseas.
VPN apps work on all kinds of devices from phones to tablets and computers to laptops. They even work with the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. You can check out our Best VPN for the Amazon Fire TV Stick guide if you’re using one of those devices.
In India the UEFA Nations League is showing completely for free on the SonyLiv network. By using a VPN you can watch this free official stream anywhere in the world.
Best of all it has full official English commentary and is shown in high quality.
Where can I get one of these VPN apps?
I recommend using ExpressVPN which are one of the largest and best VPN service providers in the world. They’ve also got a 30-day risk-free money back guarantee just on the off chance you can’t get it working (although that’s highly unlikely because it’s really easy to set-up and use).
There are a couple of other good VPN services that will let you watch the UEFA Nations League and I recommend:

Who is taking part in the UEFA Nations League?
The UEFA Nations League includes all 55 countries that make up UEFA members.
The tournament has been criticised for essentially replacing the international friendlies that most domestic team supporters loathed and saw little purpose to.
The intended reason for the tournament is not only to give purpose to the international friendlies which now offer some merit but also to allow the less glamorous nations the opportunity to arrange games with teams that ordinarily they wouldn’t have faced.
The Nations League includes teams such as England, Spain, France, Germany and Portugal and some lesser known nations in the football world like Andorra, Azerbaijan, Kosovo, San Marino and Gibraltar.

When does the UEFA Nations League take place?
The UEFA Nations League started in September 2018 with the first final in 2019.
The competition is set to run from September to November largely comprising of the date slots that would have previously been filled by international friendly matches.
Due to the way the tournament runs a winner will be crowned champion every two years rather than every year.
The most interesting prize up for grabs is four nations, taking one from each league will receive qualification for the Euro’s. The next being the Euro 2020 finals.
What about watching on some sketchy stream?
The internet is awash with sketchy football streams and you may find one of two showing the Nations League.
Definitely give these a miss. They’re obviously illegal which means watching them could get you in trouble. It’s just not the right thing to do.
They’re also really bad quality, trying to guess who is who because of the low resolution and buffering just near the goal isn’t my idea of fun.
With a VPN app costing just a couple of dollars (or pounds), you can watch a high quality football stream that is totally legitimate.
Recap: Watch the UEFA Nations League online
You can watch the UEFA Nations online from anywhere in the world. For this you’ll need to get yourself a ‘VPN‘ app.
There are so many VPN service providers out there that it’s hard to choose one. We’ve compared the best VPN services and I recommend ExpressVPN and it’s the one I’ve been using to watch the Nations League.
They allow you to watch in high quality and they’ve got a 30-day money back guarantee in the unlikely event you can’t get it working.
I strongly suggest you sign up for their 12-month package because you get 3-months absolutely free which makes the price nearly 50% cheaper than paying monthly. You’ll then be able to watch the entire Nations League ‘season’.
