Article 7 Responsibilities of the associations and clubs - Youth League

Regulations of the UEFA Youth League

Competition Regulations
3 December 2020


If necessary, visiting clubs must apply for visas from the diplomatic mission of the host country well in advance of their trip. Upon request, the home club must assist the visiting club as much as possible with the visa formalities.


The clubs are responsible for the behaviour of their players, officials, members, supporters and any person carrying out a function at a match on their behalf.


In conjunction with UEFA, the home club undertakes to make the appropriate arrangements for the staging of the matches it is hosting.


The home club (or the host association) is responsible for safety and security before, during and after the match. The home club (or the host association) may be called to account for incidents of any kind and may be disciplined.


The club considered the home club must stage its matches in accordance with the instructions of UEFA (or of a third party acting on UEFA’s behalf) and in cooperation with the association concerned. However, the club is considered solely accountable for all of its obligations in this respect.


Minimum medical requirements concerning the provision of facilities, equipment and personnel by the home club are set out in the UEFA Medical Regulations. For the avoidance of doubt, the home club has sole responsibility for the provision and operation of any facilities and equipment required in the above-mentioned regulations.


Each club indemnifies, defends and holds UEFA, its subsidiaries and all of their officers, directors, employees, representatives, agents and other auxiliary persons free and harmless against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, claims, actions, fines and expenses (including reasonable legal expenses) of whatsoever kind or nature resulting from, arising out of, or attributable to any non-compliance by the club or any of its players, officials, employees, representatives or agents with these regulations.
