The Union of European Football Associations has lifted a ban on away fans attending European club matches; supporters will now be able to attend games in the Champions League, Europa League and Conference League, subject to national government coronavirus restrictions
Away fans have not been able to attend almost all matches in European club football since the start of the pandemic, but UEFA lifted the ban on Monday - potentially allowing away fans to attend matches as early as next week, when the group stage of the three competitions begin.
UEFA also confirmed that it will no longer require players who have been fully vaccinated or recovered from coronavirus to be tested in order to play in its competitions. However, players may still need to undergo testing or comply with different vaccine requirements to enter other countries and stadiums for matches depending on national and local government coronavirus restrictions.
