If necessary, associations must apply for visas from the diplomatic mission of the host country well in advance of the relevant tournament.


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.


Associations are responsible for guaranteeing the application of sustainability principles in their activities throughout the full duration of the competition, in particular in terms of respect for human rights and the environment.


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.
