Simultaneous transmissions, replays and delayed footage of the match being played in the stadium may be transmitted on the stadium's giant screen provided that the host association has obtained all the necessary third-party permission to transmit such footage, including permission from the UEFA match delegate, the host broadcaster producing the live international feed of the match and any relevant local authorities. However, the host association must ensure that replays and delayed footage are shown on the giant screen during the match only when the ball is out of play and/or during the half-time interval, the break before extra time (if any), the half-time interval during extra time (if any) and/or before the start of the penalty shoot-out (if any). Moreover, the host association must ensure that any footage shown on the giant screen under no circumstances includes any images that:

  1. may have an impact on the playing of the match;

  2. may be reasonably considered as controversial insofar as they are likely to encourage or incite any form of crowd disorder;

  3. may display any public disorder, civil disobedience or any commercial and/or offensive material within the crowd or on the pitch;

  4. consist of any action or any behaviour which is against the principles of fair play (including any images that are aimed at highlighting, directly or indirectly, any offside offence, foul or potential mistake of a referee);

  5. are accompanied by sound.

The results of other matches can be shown on the scoreboard and/or giant screen during matches, and simultaneous transmissions and replays are authorised for press monitors and closed-circuit channels.

VAR and GLT replays may not be shown on existing screens in the stadium, unless UEFA decides otherwise.


Simultaneous or delayed transmissions on public screens outside the stadium in which a match is played (e.g. in a stadium of the visiting association or in a public place anywhere) may be authorised subject to:

  1. a licence being granted by UEFA; and

  2. authorisation being granted by the audiovisual rights holders in the territory of the screening and by the public authorities.
