25.01

Host associations must enter the venues for the qualifying competition matches online for approval by the UEFA administration by the deadline set by the UEFA administration and communicated to the associations.

25.02

When fixing a venue, the host association must take into account the length of the journey to be undertaken by the visiting team(s). In principle, venues must be no more than a two-hour bus drive from the nearest international airport in mini-tournaments and no more than 90-minutes for single matches. Match halls must be located no more than a one-hour bus drive from the hotel(s), unless agreed otherwise by the visiting team(s).

25.03

Any objection by a visiting association regarding a selected venue must be communicated to the UEFA administration, with the host association in copy, within three working days of the venue being announced by the host association. The UEFA administration will then take a final decision, either confirming the venue or requesting that the host association propose another one in accordance with these regulations.

25.04

If, at any time during the season, the UEFA administration deems that, for whatever reason, a venue may not be fit for staging a match, it may consult with the host association and ask it to propose an alternative venue, in accordance with UEFA's requirements. Should an association not be able to propose an acceptable alternative venue by the deadline set by the UEFA administration, UEFA may select a neutral alternative venue and make all the necessary arrangements for the staging of the match with the relevant association and local authorities. In both cases, the costs of staging the match must be borne by the association originally appointed as host. The UEFA administration takes a final decision on alternative venues in due time.

25.05

Host associations must enter the kick-off times of all qualifying competition matches online for approval by the UEFA administration by the deadline set by the UEFA administration and communicated to the associations.

25.06

For reasons of sporting fairness, in the main round, the UEFA administration may require that a group's last two matches take place on the same day and kick off at the same time.

25.07

Unless the UEFA administration grants special approval, associations are not allowed to fix kick-off times before 11.00 or after 22.00 (local time).

25.08

In halls without any proper warm-up area, and in the case of two consecutive matches, the host must leave at least 2 hours 15 minutes between each kick-off.
