UEFA has barred Gibraltar’s football teams from playing European fixtures at Victoria Stadium next season, a source has told the Olive Press.
Champions League and Europa League games must now be played elsewhere, with Faro in Portugal and Spain two alternatives the GFA are exploring.
The pitch failed its UEFA assessment last month following an inspection by the ruling football body.
The Olive Press understands the Spanish government’s Consejo Superior de Deportes (CSD) has been approached to give the green light for Gibraltar teams to play across the border.
If the games were to be played at La Balona’s stadium in La Linea, UEFA would need to inspect the stadium to ensure it reached the required standard.
Gibraltar will have three teams in European competition for the first time next season, with Lincoln Red Imps, Europa FC and St. Joseph’s currently occupying the top slots.
