Clubs which qualify for the UEFA club competitions on sporting merit must obtain a licence issued by their licensor according to the national licensing regulations, except where Article 17 applies.
A licence expires without prior notice at the end of the season for which it was issued.
A licence cannot be transferred.
A licence may be withdrawn by the licensor’s decision-making bodies if:
any of the conditions for the issuing of a licence are no longer satisfied; or
the licensee violates any of its obligations under the national club licensing regulations.
As soon as a licence withdrawal is envisaged, the licensor must inform UEFA accordingly.
