Kiryat Shmona v Athletic game postponed

Following a meeting of the UEFA Emergency Panel, the UEFA Europa League game between Hapoel Kiryat Shmona FC and Athletic Club has been postponed for security reasons.

The UEFA Emergency Panel met today and decided to postpone the UEFA Europa League match between Hapoel Kiryat Shmona FC (Israel) and Athletic Club (Spain) which was scheduled to take place on Thursday 22 November at the Itztadion Kiryat Eliezer in Haifa, due to the tense security situation in the region.

A decision concerning the rescheduling of the match will be made by the end of the week.
