In the course of a season, a player is eligible to play only for one single futsal club in this competition. Exceptionally, if a player fulfils the two following conditions, he may play for another club which is also taking part in this season’s competition:

  1. The player has not been fielded for any UEFA Futsal Champions League matches by the first club in question. (The fact that his name may have appeared on a match sheet is taken to mean that he was fielded in the match.)

  2. The player concerned is eligible to play for the other club by the deadlines set in Paragraph 26.01, provided that he is registered with the UEFA administration in accordance with the aforementioned procedure.


The UEFA administration decides on questions of player eligibility. Challenged decisions are dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body.
