Pre-match, half-time and post-match interviews can take place with each team at the stadium as follows:

  1. Interviews are allowed with coaches and players before the match, subject to their agreement.

  2. Half-time interviews may be conducted with the head coach, the assistant coach or players, subject to their agreement.

  3. Post-match super-flash and flash interviews take place immediately after the final whistle in designated areas between the pitch and the dressing rooms. Both teams must make their head coach and at least two key players available if requested.


Each team must make its head coach available for a post-match press conference at the match stadium. The first press conference must start no later than 20 minutes after the final whistle.


After the match, a mixed zone must be set up for the media on the ways from the team dressing rooms to the team transport area. This area – accessible only to coaches, players and media representatives – offers reporters additional opportunities to conduct interviews. Each team must provide a minimum of three players who have participated in the match to conduct interviews in each section of the mixed zone.
