Israel’s fixtures rearranged by Uefa amid ongoing war with Hamas

Israel’s men and women have had their fixtures rearranged, with clubs expected to release players outside the international window.

Uefa postponed all games scheduled in Israel in October owing to the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas.

Israel’s Euro 2024 qualifying trip to Kosovo will be on 12 November while the Women’s Nations League double header against Kazakhstan will now be played on 23 and 26 November.

Those games are outside the next international window but Israel’s Euro 2024 qualifier with Switzerland is now on 15 November, inside the window.

A Uefa statement read: “The obligation to release players will be limited to a maximum of one player per club not affiliated to one of the associations involved in the matches and the release will be due only two days prior to the matches in question, based on a special Fifa decision motivated by the exceptional circumstances, as no dates could be found in the November international windows.”
