On Friday 16 May, settlement agreements were concluded with nine clubs who had not fulfilled the break-even requirements of the UEFA Financial Fair Play (FFP) Regulations. In relation to the provisions in the settlements concerning the number of players to be included in the A list for the 2014/15 UEFA club competitions, the UEFA Emergency Panel, meeting in Lisbon on Friday 23 May, already confirmed the relevant principles, which are as follows:
• Should a club be entitled to register a maximum number of 21 players on the A list, the minimum number of places exclusively reserved for 'locally trained players' shall be five instead of eight, of which a maximum of four shall be 'association-trained'; and
• Should a club be entitled to register a maximum number of 22 players on the A list, the minimum number of places exclusively reserved for 'locally trained players' shall be six instead of eight, of which a maximum of four shall be 'association-trained'.
All nine clubs which have signed settlement agreements will be subject to ongoing monitoring, and any case of non-compliance with the terms of their agreement will be automatically referred to the Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) Adjudicatory Chamber as per Article 15(4) of the Procedural Rules governing the CFCB.
UEFA also confirms that no reviews were requested of the settlement agreements, either by directly affected parties or by the chairman of the CFCB.
