53.01

For the implementation of the competition, UEFA may appoint third parties to act as brokers or agents on its behalf and/or as service providers.

53.02

All contracts that a club (or any third party acting on behalf of a club) enters into in respect of any commercial rights authorised by these regulations in relation to the competition must expire on 30 June 2023 at the latest or contain a clause allowing the club to terminate any such contract (or be able to release its rights) as of this date.

53.03

UEFA declines all responsibility in the event of conflicts arising from contracts between a club or any of its players, officials, employees, representatives or agents and any third party (including their sponsors, suppliers, manufacturers, broadcasters, agents and players) on account of the provisions of these regulations and/or any other UEFA regulations and such persons’ obligations thereunder.

53.04

No member association and/or its affiliated organisation or club may participate in, or allow any third party to use rights granted by such member associations and/or affiliated organisation or club in, any aggregation of commercial rights in any way that would permit third parties to create an association with the qualifying stage or any other round of the competition and/or the UEFA Futsal Champions League generally, whether through the use of a branded marketing programme or otherwise.

53.05

Member associations and/or their affiliated organisations or clubs may not use or authorise any third party to use any of the competition trademarks or music or any graphic material or artistic forms developed in connection with the competition in programmes, promotions, publications or advertising or otherwise without the prior written consent of UEFA or if not specifically permitted in these regulations. In addition, member associations and/or their affiliated organisations or clubs may not develop, use, register, adopt or create any mark, logo or symbol which refers to the competition or which, in UEFA’s reasonable opinion, is confusingly similar to, is a colourable imitation of, is a derivation of, or unfairly competes with such trademarks, materials or forms.

53.06

In the event that the host puts in place a ticketing and media accreditation programme for its matches, it shall ensure that, as a minimum, the ticketing terms and conditions for those matches stipulate that:

  1. no person may conduct any promotional or commercial activity in the match hall, without the prior written approval of UEFA;

  2. tickets must not be used for any commercial purposes such as for promotion, advertising, use as a prize in a competition/sweepstake, or as part of a hospitality or travel package without the prior written approval of UEFA;

  3. all people attending the match acknowledge that use may be made (free of charge) of their voice, image and/or likeness in still images and audio/visual transmissions relating to the match (this acknowledgement is required even if no formal ticketing programme is put in place);

  4. no person attending the match may, without UEFA’s prior written approval, collect, record, transmit and/or exploit any sound, image, data, statistics and/or description of the match for any purpose other than for private use.
