In order to be eligible to participate in the competition, players must be registered with UEFA by 2 August 2021 (24.00CET) to play for a club and fulfil all the conditions set out in the following provisions. Only players that are duly registered with UEFA by means of list A or B can validly serve pending suspensions.


Each player must be duly registered with their national association as playing for the club concerned in accordance with the association’s own rules and those of FIFA, notably the FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players.


Each player taking part in the competition must be in possession of a player’s registration licence issued by his association or a valid passport or identity card, each containing his photograph and giving full particulars of his date of birth (day, month, year). The referee or the UEFA match delegate may ask to see the passports/identity cards of the players listed on the match sheet.


All players must undergo a medical examination to the extent provided for by the UEFA Medical Regulations.


The club bears the legal consequences for fielding a player who is not named on list A or B, or who is otherwise not eligible to play.


A player who participates in the UEFA Super Cup may play in other UEFA club competitions subject to the conditions set forth in the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, UEFA Europa Conference League and UEFA Youth League regulations.


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