The committee also decided to raise the minimum ban for assaulting match officials from 10 to 15 matches. For insulting a match official, the minimum sanction will rise from two to three matches.

The venues for the finals of the UEFA club competitions in 2015 were also approved - Berlin's Olympic Stadium for the Champions League and Warsaw's National Stadium for the Europa League.

UEFA General Secretary Gianni Infantino says details on the format of the Europa League will be announced to its congress on Friday, with the winners set to earn a place in the Champions League.
