The visiting associations cover their own international and national travel expenses to and from the mini-tournament venue.


The host association of a mini-tournament retains its revenue and pays all organisational costs. Its obligations commence one day before the first group matches and end one day after the last group matches.


The host association pays for the board and lodging of all participating teams (for a maximum of 26 persons per delegation, i.e. 20 players and 6 team officials), and for any costs related to their transport within the host association’s territory.


The host association pays for the board and lodging of the referee team, the UEFA match delegate and the two UEFA referee observers as well as for their transport within the host association's territory. Their international travel expenses and daily allowances are covered by UEFA.


The travel costs and daily allowances of the referees appointed by the host association are borne by the host association.


The UEFA administration charges each travelling association a flat amount of €30,000, which is credited to the host association to help cover the financial demands connected with the staging of the mini-tournament, in accordance with the present regulations.


The UEFA administration credits the host association with an additional financial contribution based on the host country’s gross national income per capita, according to the categorisation of the UEFA member associations:

  • €15,000 for a category 1 host country;

  • €35,000 for a category 2 host country;

  • €55,000 for a category 3 host country.
