UEFA announces ahead of each lot the travel restrictions between European countries, according to political problems such as Russia, Ukraine and some other countries.
Clubs will then have to inform the UEFA of any other unknown or additional restrictions at least 48 hours before the drawing of the Champions League or European League.
UEFA issued an official statement transmitted by the network “Sky Sports”, as follows:
“If the club fails to inform the UEFA two days before the lottery of any restrictions other than that published by UEFA, the club will bear the responsibility and will be considered a loser of the match 3-0.”
He continued: “If one of the clubs is withdrawn and signed in front of an opponent who is not allowed to travel to that country, he must find a suitable neutral stadium for the match that was supposed to take place on his home.”
The statement added: “If the owner of the club fails to provide a suitable alternative place, it will also be considered a loser for the match, as stipulated in the rules of the European Football Association.”
