UEFA lifts ban on international matches in Azerbaijan and Armenia
The UEFA Executive Committee has lifted the ban on international matches in Azerbaijan and Armenia, the committee said.
Following the ceasefire that was agreed between both countries on 9 November 2020 and taking all circumstances into account, it is assessed that the conditions to stage UEFA matches in both countries can now be met.
Consequently, the UEFA Executive Committee decided to remove the ban imposed on 20 October 2020 on UEFA competition matches being played in Azerbaijan and Armenia.
In October, UEFA’s Executive Committee decided that UEFA club and national team competitions will not take place in Armenia and Azerbaijan until further notice because of the continuing military conflict in the Nagorno-Karabakh region.
