That this House congratulates Gareth Southgate and the England men's football team for qualifying to the UEFA Nations League finals in Portugal in June 2019 beating Spain and Croatia; notes that this new official UEFA competition has significant standing as a major competitive international trophy; further notes that the tournament has gripped the public imagination after an already successful year for the England men's football team; notes that the team could win its first trophy since 1966 in next year's finals; notes that UEFA has given exclusive broadcast rights in the UK to the pay-per-view channel Sky Sport; notes that The Broadcasting Act 1996 (as amended) gives the Secretary of State the power to draw up a list of sporting events of national interest; believes that the UEFA Nations League finals are of national interest and within the scope of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport definition of a listed event as one which is generally felt to have special national resonance and which contains an element which serves to unite the nation, a shared point on the national calendar, not solely of interest to those who follow the sport in question; and calls on the Government to include the Nations League Finals as a listed event.
