The 2000 European Nations Cup was the newly formed European Championship for second tier nations. The main reformation of the competition was down to the induction of professionalism and Italy being granted a place in the Six Nations.

The First Season had 6 teams (5 European and 1 African in Morocco). The Teams played each other once, playing roughly to the same weekends as the Six Nations.
