27.01

If it is decided on the day of a match that the match cannot start or cannot be played in full, the full or remaining match time is, as a rule, played the next day, without prejudice to any possible disciplinary measures. For that purpose, the home clubs must conclude all the necessary agreements to ensure that the required facilities are available and can be operated.

27.02

If the match cannot be rescheduled for the next day, the UEFA administration fixes a new date. This may entail exceptions to the regular match calendar (see Annex C).

27.03

As a rule, a rescheduled match is played at the same stadium. If the circumstances require a change of stadium, the UEFA administration must approve the alternative stadium.

27.04

For exceptional circumstances and cases of extreme urgency that may have a significant impact on the running of the competition, and to ensure that a rescheduled match can be completed, if necessary without spectators, the home club must have access to a back-up stadium approved by the UEFA administration. For emergency back-up stadiums, exceptions can be made to all regular stadium requirements.

27.05

In all cases, the UEFA administration must approve the stadium and fix the new kick-off time taking account of the teams’ needs wherever possible.

27.06

If a club is responsible for any change to the match stadium or match schedule for all or part of a match, that club bears its own expenses as well as any additional travel, board and lodging expenses incurred by the other club, the referee team and the match officers, without prejudice to any possible disciplinary measures.

27.07

If the match stadium or match schedule is changed through no fault of either club, each party bears its own expenses related to the original fixture and the rescheduled match or remaining match time.

27.08

In all cases, decisions taken on the basis of this article are without prejudice to any possible disciplinary measures.
