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


Matches must be played in stadiums within the territory of the host association. Exceptionally, matches may be played in the territory of another UEFA member association, if so decided by the relevant UEFA bodies, for instance for reasons of safety or as a result of a disciplinary measure.


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


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


The associations are responsible for incorporating principles of sustainability in their activities during the competition, in particular in terms of respect for human rights and the environment. The associations should maintain impeccable behaviour in terms of respect for human rights, namely in supporting the fight against racism and other sorts of discrimination. In addition, the associations participating in the final tournament should make the most environmentally friendly choices possible in relation to their operations, with the goal of minimising their negative impacts.


The UEFA administration informs the associations participating in the final tournament about any further guidelines, directives or decisions related to that stage of the competition and provides them with all relevant documents in due time.
