36.01

Each club is responsible for submitting a list of a maximum of 40 players for the entire season, duly signed, to its association for verification, validation, signature and forwarding to UEFA. This list must include the surname, first name, date of birth and nationality of all players to be fielded in the competition in question, as well as the surname and first name of the head coach. In addition, the list must include the confirmation by the club’s doctor that all players have undergone the requested medical examination; the club’s doctor is solely responsible for ensuring that the requested players’ medical examination has been duly performed.

36.02

The list of 40 players has to be submitted by 13 October 2020 (24.00CET). No club may have more than 40 players on that list, at least three of whom must be goalkeepers.

36.03

After the first matchday, the list of 40 players may be amended at any time up until seven days before a match. Any new players must be registered in accordance with the requirements set out in Article 35 and Paragraph 35.02.

36.04

Exceptionally, up to five players born on or after 1 January 2001 may be included on the list of 40 players, provided the following criteria are fulfilled:

  1. The player has been eligible to play for the club concerned without interruption for the two years immediately preceding 20 October 2020, or has been eligible to play for the club concerned for two of the three years immediately preceding 20 October 2020 and registered with a maximum of one other club from the same association for an uninterrupted period of up to one year for the other one.

  3. The player is not replaced on the list of 40 players, except in the event of long-term injury/illness or registration with another club. An injury or illness is considered long-term if it lasts at least 30 days as of the day the injury or illness occurred. The club must provide UEFA with the necessary medical evidence in one of UEFA's official languages.

  4. If the player is removed from the list of 40 players due to long term injury/illness (see Paragraph 36.04(c)) and replaced by another player born on or after 1 January 2001, he cannot be re-registered on recovery.

Each club must submit a shortlist of 20 eligible players from its list of 40 players by midnight CET the day before each match. No club may have more than 20 players on its shortlist before a match.
