Article 7 Responsibilities of the associations and clubs - Europa League

Regulations of the UEFA Europa League

Competition Regulations
24 September 2020

The clubs are responsible for the behaviour of their players, officials, members, supporters and any person carrying out a function at a match on their behalf.


The home club (or the host association) is responsible for safety and security before, during and after the match. The home club (or the host association) may be called to account for incidents of any kind and may be disciplined.


The club considered the home club must stage its matches in accordance with the instructions of UEFA (or of a third party acting on UEFA’s behalf) and in cooperation with the association concerned. However, the club is considered solely accountable for all of its obligations in this respect.


Minimum medical requirements concerning the provision of facilities, equipment and personnel by the home club are set out in the UEFA Medical Regulations. For the avoidance of doubt, the home club has sole responsibility for the provision and operation of any facilities and equipment required in the above-mentioned regulations.


Visiting clubs undertake not to play any other matches when travelling to and from away matches in this competition.


UEFA declines all responsibility in the event of conflicts arising from contracts between a club or any of its players, officials, employees, representatives or agents and any third party (including their sponsors, suppliers, manufacturers, broadcasters, agents and players) on account of the provisions of these regulations and/or any other UEFA regulations and such persons’ obligations thereunder.


Each club indemnifies, defends and holds UEFA, its subsidiaries and any LOC and all of their officers, directors, employees, representatives, agents and other auxiliary persons free and harmless against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, claims, actions, fines and expenses (including reasonable legal expenses) of whatsoever kind or nature resulting from, arising out of, or attributable to any non-compliance by the club or any of its players, officials, employees, representatives or agents with the present regulations.
