Israel barred from hosting UEFA matches

Share This

Israel will not be allowed to host Champions League or Europa League games because of the conflict in the country.

Maccabi Tel Aviv, Hapoel Tel Aviv and Hapoel Be’er Sheva will have to propose alternative home venues “until further notice” to Uefa, European football’s governing body.

Uefa has also ruled that Russian and Ukrainian teams cannot be drawn against each other in European competition.

This is as a result of the political situation between the two countries.

This decision means Russian side FC Zenit and Dnipro of Ukraine will not be paired together at the Champions League third qualifying round draw on 18 July.
