UEFA's New Footballing Law Amendments are Applicable from 25th of June
The New laws of the Game devised by UEFA that are set to be enforced will not be applied for the UEFA Champions League final between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool in Madrid. Several amendments in the game of football approved by the football’s law makers - the International Football Association Board (IFAB), will be applied in all UEFA competitions which are to be held post 25 June.
The Laws will come into force for the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League preliminary rounds scheduled for 25 June, and the UEFA Europa League preliminary round, which is to be held on 27 June.
The IFAB has informed the competition organizers that for the ongoing competitions, they may decide on the starting date of implementation, and at the most, it could be postponed until the end of the competition. The European competitions will be concluded in the month of June.
In Order to avoid any disruption due to limited preparation time and the lack of awareness of the substantial number of changes to the laws of the game, UEFA has decided to merge the implementation with the start of the new season. The intention is to provide enough time for UEFA’s 55member associations to ensure that all their clubs and players are fully prepared for the changes.
The law-changes will not be applicable to Futsal competitions until any updates are made to the FIFA Futsal Laws of the Game.
