If any doubt arises as to whether the match can take place as scheduled, the host club or association must immediately notify the UEFA administration. The latter decides if the match is confirmed as scheduled or if any change has to be made concerning the venue, date or kick-off time. Such decision by the UEFA administration is final.
If any doubt arises as to the condition of the field of play after the departure of the two teams for the venue, the referee decides on the spot whether or not it is fit for play.
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.
