The continental body, as reported this Thursday in a statement, has requested the Israeli Football Association and its clubs Maccabi Haifa and Maccabi Tel Aviv that propose alternative venues and stadiums outside the country’s territory to play their home matches while said decision is in force.

UEFA has also announced that the Europa League match Villarreal-Maccabi Haifa, scheduled for Thursday the 26th at La Cerámica, is postponed to Wednesday, December 6, and the Maccabi Tel Aviv-Zorya Luhansk, of the Conference League, to Saturday, November 25.
