G.5.2.1

Delayed rights may be exploited by the clubs on official club platforms from the later of midnight CET or local time in the territory of exploitation after the conclusion of the relevant match subject to the following conditions:

  1. until Friday midnight CET (Thursday 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 a single (i.e. only one at any moment in time) short promotional clip of no more than two minutes which may include highlights promoting the club’s participation in the competition and 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 instruction;

  2. after Friday midnight CET (Thursday 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);

  3. clips and programmes may be fully dedicated (i.e. 100%) to the UEFA Europa League; and

  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 Europa League 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.

G.5.2.2

In general, the embargos and restrictions given above in Annex G.5.2.1 shall apply to all audiovisual and/or visual coverage of the competition, whether taken from the raw feed or created by the clubs directly (including pre- and post-match activities). However, the following exceptions shall only apply in respect of any and all digital exploitation on official club platforms:

  1. content created by clubs from within the stadium perimeter prior to 45 minutes before kick-off (e.g. from allocated pitch-view studios or pitch side presentation positions) may be exploited on official club platforms on a live and/or delayed basis, providing the broadcast of the live match is promoted in accordance with UEFA guidelines and regulations (subject to UEFA assisting the relevant club to comply with its promotional obligations). For the avoidance of doubt, any and all exploitation of the aforementioned content must end 45 minutes before kick-off;

  2. content created by clubs from within the stadium perimeter up until the later of the players leaving the field after the pre-match warm-up and 15 minutes prior to kick-off may be exploited on digital official club platforms up until kick-off and/or from 15 minutes after the end of the match, providing each clip promotes the broadcast of the match in accordance with UEFA guidelines and regulations and subject to a maximum duration of 30 seconds per clip, and 3 minutes in total per match; and

  3. a maximum of 60 seconds of footage per match (such footage being limited to non-match action) produced by clubs in areas where UEFA media partners have no access may be exploited on digital official club platforms as from 15 minutes after the end of the match.
