  1. until Thursday midnight CET (Sunday midnight CET for the final) any clips and programmes may only be made available on a subscription basis (pay and/or pay-per-view), with the exception of (i) a single (i.e. only one at any moment in time) clip of no more than two minutes which may be transmitted on a free basis provided that it promotes the competition’s global broadcast platform in accordance with UEFA guidelines and regulations (e.g. with a link to UEFA’s “where to watch” page) subject to UEFA providing the clubs with the relevant promotional materials and instructions and (ii) unsponsored and/or sponsored (but only by the relevant UEFA sponsor) clips equivalent to the sole and exclusive footage promotions which are made available by UEFA sponsors and UEFA (e.g., the “Goal of the Week”) which may be transmitted on a free basis after midnight CET after the relevant match;

  2. after Thursday midnight CET (Sunday midnight CET for the final), clips and programmes may be made available on a free and/or subscription basis (pay and/or pay-per-view);

  4. clips and programmes may be sponsored by a third party but not in a way that creates a direct or indirect association with the competition. However, clips and programmes containing more than 50% of UEFA content (comprising UEFA Champions League and/or play-offs content and any other UEFA-related content, including other UEFA competitions) may only be sponsored by UEFA sponsors. The list of UEFA sponsors and the conditions and procedures applicable to the sponsorship will be communicated by UEFA to the club at the club’s written request.
