FIFA announced late Thursday that it had made amendments to the rules for recalling players to their country’s national teams in upcoming international matches, in light of clubs ’concerns about quarantine procedures in light of the emerging coronavirus pandemic.
FIFA has published a detailed protocol regarding future international matches, which include friendly matches, matches in the European Nations League and World Cup qualifiers.
The new protocol includes the application of the regulations in the usual manner, with the exception of cases that witness a period of quarantine or self-isolation, mandatory for a period of five days, at least, at the place where the club is located or upon arrival at the place where the international match is held.
Clubs are entitled not to allow their players to join the national team “in the event of travel restrictions to or from another location” or “in the event that no exception is granted to players by the relevant authorities.”
And before the international matches that took place last September, FIFA relaxed the rules for the clubs’ obligation to send players to the national teams, if the teams were playing in countries classified as risk areas for HIV infection.
The clubs had hoped that FIFA would take a similar decision before the next international matches scheduled for this October, especially with the increasing number of people infected with the virus and the classification of more countries and regions as hot spots.
Stefan Reuter, director of football at the German club Augsburg, said in comments published by “Kicker” magazine on Thursday: “For me, it is ridiculous to send players to dangerous areas. It is FIFA’s job to transfer those matches or work to ensure that players are not obligated to submit to quarantine.” Health after their return. ”
Christian Schafert, managing director of the German Bundesliga, said he had hoped the situation would be different when talking about international matches and the busy schedule of matches this season.
“National federations have sponsors and partners who represent important sources of income. Especially for smaller unions in Europe,” Schaefert added.
