UEFA’s top management team attending the final eight tournaments of the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Women’s Champions League and UEFA Europa League will be tested regularly for COVID-19, in line with the UEFA Medical Protocol, to ensure the safest possible environment for teams and coaching staff at the stadiums.
The organisation’s leaders will be tested before leaving for the first match and at regular intervals in between, as required by the local authorities concerned. In addition, UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin, who will present the trophies and medals to the winning teams and General Secretary Theodore Theodoridis will be tested two days before the finals.
This programme of testing sits alongside the testing which all UEFA operational staff will undergo if they have any contact with players, coaching staff or officials.
