G.6.1

The conditions for audiovisual fixed-media exploitation are as follows:

  1. as from Thursday midnight CET (Sunday midnight CET for the final);

  2. club branded and dedicated product (e.g. Olympique Lyonnais History);

  3. an individual product cannot contain more than 50% of UEFA content comprising UEFA Champions League/play-offs content and any other UEFA-related content, including other UEFA competitions. The only exception to this rule is a single product (of which an identical version may be distributed via multiple fixed-media formats but in any case on a stand-alone basis) dedicated to the final and released by the winning club (which may have 100% final related content);

  4. the fixed media devices may be employed to reproduce match footage of the UEFA Champions League/play-offs matches together with other editorial elements but may not incorporate any other content (for example, video games or interactive quizzes) and their sole function shall be to store the above content;

  5. the product may be sponsored by a third party (but not in a way that creates a direct or indirect association with the competition). The sole exceptions relate to products dedicated to the final and released by the winning club in the manner described in point c) above – such products cannot have any sponsorship and/or direct/indirect third-party association; and

  6. in case of production of a series of products (i.e. several DVDs associated by a common theme including name, branding, packaging, distribution and/or promotion), (i) the series and (ii) each product forming part of the series shall be considered as a product for the purpose of this Annex G.6.

    Example:
    Within a series of DVDs dedicated to the history of FC Barcelona:

    1. the series of DVDs shall contain a maximum of 50% of UEFA content comprising UEFA Champions League/play-offs content and any other UEFA-related content, including other UEFA competitions; and

    2. each DVD shall contain a maximum of 50% of UEFA content comprising UEFA Champions League/play-offs content and any other UEFA-related content, including other UEFA competitions, with the exception of one DVD featuring a final won by FC Barcelona.
