Ukraine's UEFA Nations League fixture with Switzerland cannot take place

UEFA

Following recent positive COVID-19 test results within the Ukrainian national team, the relevant Swiss authorities have decided to place the whole Ukrainian national team delegation into quarantine. The Ukrainian football association confirmed they have no other team, i.e. eligible players, able to play the match, either today or tomorrow. The UEFA Nations League fixture between Switzerland and Ukraine, scheduled for today, Tuesday 17 November 2020, can therefore not take place.

The matter will now be submitted to the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body, for a decision to be taken in accordance with the special rules applicable to UEFA National Team competition matches.

UEFA would like to reinforce the importance for all teams, players, officials and all those involved to fully respect the UEFA Return to Play Protocol and the applicable regulatory framework.
