Israeli clubs will not be allowed to play European matches at home

With the Israel-Hamas conflict raising tensions in the region, UEFA has taken the decision to not allow teams from Israel to play European matches at home.

An emergency panel convened by UEFA took the decision with security being their main concern due to the ongoing battle between Israel and Hamas.

This will ensure that no Israeli team will play Champions League and Europa League matches at home.

UEFA said that Israeli clubs would have to make arrangements to play their home legs in another country “until further notice”.

With Champions League and Europa League qualifiers due to be played this month, clubs like Maccabi Tel Aviv (UCL), Hapoel Tel Aviv and Hapoel Be’er Sheva (both EL) will have to find an alternative venue.
