33.01

Simultaneous transmissions, replays and delayed footage of the match being played in the stadium may be transmitted on the stadium’s giant screen provided that the host club has obtained all the necessary third-party permission to transmit such footage, including permission from the relevant UEFA match officer and any relevant local authorities. However, the host club must ensure that replays and delayed footage are shown on the giant screen during the match only when the ball is out of play and/or during the half-time interval, the break before extra time (if any), the half-time interval during extra time (if any) and/or before the start of the kicks from the penalty mark. Moreover, the host club must ensure that any footage shown on the giant screen is in line with the guidelines communicated by UEFA at the start of the season and under no circumstances includes any images that:

  1. may have an impact on the playing of the match;

  2. may be reasonably considered as controversial insofar as they are likely to encourage or incite any form of crowd disorder;

  3. may display any public disorder, civil disobedience or any commercial and/or offensive material within the crowd or on the pitch;

  4. may be deemed to criticise, undermine or damage the reputation, standing or authority of any player, referee and/or any other party at the stadium (including any images that are aimed at highlighting, directly or indirectly, any offside offence, foul, potential mistake of a referee and/or any behaviour which is contrary to the principle of fair play).

In addition, the results of other matches can be shown on the scoreboard and/or giant screen during the match, and simultaneous transmissions and replays are authorised for press monitors and closed-circuit channels.

This article does not apply to VAR replays, which may only be shown on the giant screen in accordance with the relevant guidelines issued by UEFA.

33.02

If requested by UEFA, clubs must exclusively display on giant screens in the stadium a special video feed featuring the UEFA Europa League branding and including information and images from all matches of the competition.

33.03

From the group stage onwards, simultaneous or delayed transmissions on public screens outside the stadium in which a match is played (e.g. in the stadium of the away club or in a public place anywhere) may be authorised, subject to:

  1. a licence being granted by UEFA at its sole discretion (after consultation with the audiovisual right holders in the territory of the screening); and

  2. authorisation being granted by the public authorities.

33.04

Until the play-offs (inclusive), such transmissions on public screens are subject to the terms of Paragraph 62.01.
