In any case, the UEFA administration may reschedule matches if this ensures a match is played and allows the qualifying rounds and play-offs to be completed accordingly. This should not jeopardise the schedule of any forthcoming rounds in the competition or other UEFA competitions. Such decisions of the UEFA administration are final. The rescheduling of matches is subject to the following deadlines for the different rounds of the competitions:

  • UEFA Champions League Preliminary Round: by 26 June 2022

  • UEFA Champions League 1st qualifying round: by 14 July 2022

  • UEFA Champions League 2nd qualifying round: by 28 July 2022

  • UEFA Champions League 3rd qualifying round: by 11 August 2022

  • UEFA Champions League play-offs: by 25 August 2022


If, for any reason, a round in the qualifying rounds or play-offs cannot be completed in accordance with this Annex I, the UEFA Executive Committee will decide on the principles for determining the clubs that qualify for the next round of the competition.


Any unforeseen circumstances related to this Annex will be dealt with in accordance with Article 84 of the present regulations.
