Each association must provide the UEFA administration with a list of 14 players (surname, first name, shirt name, club and date of birth) as well as the surname and first name of the head coach. Two of these 14 players must be goalkeepers. In addition, the lists must include confirmation by the team’s doctor that all players have undergone the requested medical examination; the team’s doctor is solely responsible for ensuring that the requested players’ medical examination has been duly performed. This list must be completed online by 15.00CET the day before the start of a mini-tournament or a single match. A signed copy must be handed to the UEFA match delegate at the match or mini-tournament organisational meeting.


For identification purposes, UEFA match delegates may make a visual check of each player participating in the competition. As a rule, one such visual check takes place at a mealtime at the team’s accommodation before the start of a mini-tournament or a single match.


A maximum of one outfield player named on the list of 14 may be replaced by another player, upon submission of written medical evidence of illness or injury in one of UEFA’s official languages no later than 09.00CET on the day of the relevant match. The replaced player can take no further part in the mini-tournament or single match and no other outfield player may be replaced. In cases of particular hardship and upon reasoned request, the UEFA General Secretary may grant exceptions.


If an association cannot count on the services of at least two goalkeepers registered on the list of 14 players because of injury or illness, the association concerned may temporarily replace the goalkeeper(s) concerned on the list of 14 at any time during the competition, upon submission to the UEFA match delegate of written medical evidence of illness or injury in one of UEFA's official languages. The association must provide UEFA with the necessary medical evidence. UEFA may require further medical examination of the goalkeeper(s) by an expert appointed by the UEFA administration at the cost of the association. Once an injured or ill goalkeeper is fit to be fielded again he can resume his position in place of his nominated substitute. Any such changes must be announced to the UEFA administration at least 24 hours before the next match in which the goalkeeper is due to play.


The associations are responsible for ensuring that the aforementioned provisions concerning player eligibility and lists of players are observed.
