Photographers may work behind the advertising boards along the goal lines and, if space allows, along the touchline opposite the team benches. Photographers may only change ends at half-time or, if applicable, during the interval before the start of extra time and before kicks from the penalty mark.
The home club must provide photographers with pitchside seats with internet connections, as well as a working area with desks, power, and internet connections for at least 25 photographers. All internet connections for photographers must be dedicated networks and provided free of charge.
Photographers may attend the pre- and post-match press conferences, space permitting.
Each photographer must obtain – and sign for – the appropriate UEFA Champions League photographer’s bib before the match and must return it before leaving the stadium. The bib must be worn at all times, with the number clearly visible on the back.
UEFA is responsible for the design and production of photographers’ bibs (as well as bibs for audiovisual rights-holder personnel and ENG crews). The home club is responsible for assigning sufficient personnel for the distribution of photographers’ bibs prior to the match and collection of the bibs when photographers leave the stadium (during or after the match).
Photographs taken by officially accredited photographers may be published online for editorial purposes only, subject to the following conditions:
they must appear as stills and not as moving pictures or quasi-video;
there must be an interval of at least 20 seconds between postings of photographs.
