The day before the match, pitch conditions permitting, both teams are allowed to train for a maximum of one hour on the pitch on which the match is to take place. For the final tournament group stage, this provision applies only to each team's first match in a stadium. In all cases, if holding such training sessions could render the pitch unfit for play the next day, an alternative training ground must be made available. Alternative training grounds must be approved by the UEFA administration in advance. If both teams wish to train at the same time, priority is given to the visiting team.


In addition, in the qualifying competition, the visiting team may hold private training sessions at a location to be agreed on with the host association, but not at the match stadium.


The referee team may train on the pitch on which the match will be played the day before the match.


If an association participating in the final tournament holds a public training session, it must comply with the instructions and guidelines issued by the UEFA administration. Participating associations may not exploit any commercial rights in relation to such public training sessions.
