Article 57 Accreditations and access rights - Futsal Champions League

Regulations of the UEFA Futsal Champions League

Competition Regulations
24 September 2020

Photographers may work in the areas behind the advertising boards between the goals and corners. They may only change ends at half-time or, if applicable, during the interval before the start of extra time. Photographers may work from the stands if located in a dedicated area and given permission to do so by the host.


Photographers may attend the post-match press conferences, space permitting. However, no photography is allowed in the mixed zone or interview areas.


No media representatives are allowed to go on to the field of play before, during or after the match, with the exception of the host broadcaster camera crew covering the team line-ups at the start of the match and up to two host broadcaster camera crews filming the teams after the end of the match. The same applies to the tunnel and dressing-room area, with the exception of UEFA-approved flash interview positions and a camera of the host broadcaster filming the following activities:

  1. team arrivals (as far as to the dressing-room area);

  2. players in the tunnel before the match;

  3. players returning to the pitch at the start of the second half.


A limited number of photographers, cameramen and production staff of the audiovisual rights holders – all equipped with the appropriate pitch-access accreditation – are allowed in the area between the boundaries of the field of play and the spectators.


Subject to the prior agreement of the club, one host broadcaster camera and UEFA, may enter the dressing room of each club before the match to film the players' shirts and equipment. The host broadcaster may also conduct a brief presentation with its main reporter or presenter in the home club's dressing room, subject to the home club's prior agreement. The main visiting broadcaster may conduct one brief presentation in the away club's dressing room, subject to the prior agreement of the away club. This filming is organised by UEFA and must be completed well before the arrival of the players. Any additional dressing room access for media (e.g. for post-match celebrations) must be agreed between the relevant team and UEFA in advance.


A position in the main stand should be foreseen for a camera crew from each team to conduct technical filming. Generally they should be in a central position or a position agreed by the teams and the local press officer.
