The host association should provide a press conference room with at least ten seats, a head table and chairs for three people and a backdrop. If the expected media presence is low, the host association can decide to organise a more informal media activity in the mixed zone instead of a full press conference.


If applicable, the post-match press conference must start no later than 20 minutes after the end of the match. Both teams are obliged to make at least their head coach available for this purpose.


After the match, a mixed zone must be set up between the teams’ dressing rooms and the team transport area. This area offers reporters additional opportunities to conduct interviews and is accessible only to coaches, players and media representatives. It should feature sufficient space to accommodate at least ten media representatives, with barriers between the players and the media.


All players from both teams who have participated in the match, either in the starting line-up or as substitutes, are obliged to pass through the entire mixed zone in order to conduct interviews with the media.
