The 2019 Edition of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations - Analysis of selected amendments
Over the past year, the spotlight in terms of football regulatory developments has been mostly on the reforms to the football transfer system that are being carried out by FIFA. It is, therefore, not surprising that other relevant regulatory developments have gone somewhat unnoticed. We would place in this category the latest amendments to the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations (the Regulations) that came into force on 15 June 2019.
 

We examine in this article a selection of those amendments, which we deem of particular interest and which relate to the following areas:

  1. Narrowing the scope of strict liability;
  2. Strict liability and the Safety and Security Regulations;
  3. Rewarding “prompt reaction” of clubs & NAs;
  4. Suspension of disciplinary sanctions & recidivism;
  5. Communications between sanctioned coaches and their team;
  6. Cautions imposed upon coaches.

Narrowing the scope of strict liability
