For the final, UEFA owns all rights relating to tickets and decides on the number of tickets to be allocated to the finalists (these allocations do not necessarily have to be equal) and to the host association. In addition, the UEFA administration, in conjunction with the host association, fixes the ticket prices. UEFA may issue ticketing terms and conditions, as well as special instructions, guidelines and/or directives for the sale and/or distribution of tickets (including those contained in the UEFA Safety and Security Regulations). Such UEFA decisions and/or requirements are final. Furthermore, the host association and the finalists must provide all necessary cooperation to UEFA for enforcing such ticketing terms and conditions.


Before the final, the Executive Committee decides on the financial distribution model in favour of:

  1. the two finalists;

  2. the host association (in accordance with the staging agreement);

  3. UEFA.


UEFA organises hotel accommodation for the two clubs. Any hotel contracts, or the responsibility for managing all relevant services relating to such contracts, are transferred to the clubs upon qualification, and any payments that UEFA has made to those hotels in advance are deducted from the bonus payments due.


Each club is responsible for its own expenses.


The accounts of the final must be submitted to the UEFA administration within one month of the final taking place.
