European Club Association (ECA) members are set to prevent their players from traveling to red-list countries in September for international duty unless quarantine exemptions are made.

The UK currently has a 10-day quarantine period in a managed hotel in force for any individuals travelling to countries on the red list, this isolation period would result in players missing multiple Premier League games. Clubs across Europe in major leagues are facing a similar problem with the international break starting at the beginning of September.
