The amounts paid by UEFA are gross amounts. As such they cover any and all taxes, levies and charges.


The UEFA administration resolves any disputes concerning the settlement of accounts by the participating associations. Such decisions are final.


For all matches in the competition, the host association pays the cost of the board and lodging of the referee team, the UEFA match delegate and the UEFA referee observer as well as their transport costs within the territory of the host association. The international travel expenses and daily allowances of these officials are paid by UEFA.


The host association’s obligations commence one day before the match or the first match of a mini-tournament and end one day after the match or the last match of a mini-tournament.


In principle, the host association retains its revenue and bears all organisational costs.


The host association is responsible for any travel expenses and daily allowances incurred by the timekeeper.


For mini-tournaments, the host association bears the following costs for the visiting teams:

  1. board and lodging in a high standard four-star hotel for a maximum of 21 people per delegation (14 players and 7 team officials);

  2. local transport;

  3. laundry service for the playing attire of the participating teams and referees.


To assist in covering the costs of the mini-tournaments UEFA makes the following contributions:

  1. €10,000 per mini-tournament participant;

  2. an additional contribution based on the host country's gross national income per capita, according to the categorisation of the UEFA member associations:

    • €10,000 for a category 1 host country;

    • €12,500 for a category 2 host country;

    • €15,000 for a category 3 host country.


For single matches, the visiting association bears its own travel, board and lodging costs, unless the associations concerned agree otherwise.


Visiting associations cover their own international travel expenses to and from the venue. UEFA compensates each association with a contribution of:

  • €10,000 per return trip for a mini-tournament;

  • €5,000 per return trip for a single match.
