If any party to the match has any reason to doubt whether a match can take place as scheduled, they must notify the UEFA administration immediately. If the UEFA administration receives any such notification, or has any reason itself to believe a match may not be able to be played as scheduled, it decides if any change will be made to the venue, date or kick-off time, or if the match will take place as scheduled. Such decision by the UEFA administration is final.
The referee decides if a match cannot start or if a match which has started must be abandoned. This decision is made after consultation with the UEFA match delegate and, when possible, the UEFA administration.
If there are fewer than seven players on either of the teams, the match is not played or is abandoned.
In all cases, decisions taken on the basis of this article are without prejudice to any possible disciplinary measures.
