The 2022/28 Commercial Regulations governing the European Qualifiers, UEFA Nations League and friendly matches govern the rights, duties and responsibilities of all parties regarding the commercial rights.


Associations must obtain all necessary third party rights and consents that are required in order for them to comply with this chapter and, upon request, must supply UEFA free of charge with the necessary documentation (including any third party consents) required to allow UEFA to use and exploit its rights under these regulations.


On registering for the competition, associations must grant UEFA the non-exclusive right to use photographic, audiovisual and visual material of their team, players, coaches, officials and other employees (including their names, relevant statistics, data and images), as well as the association imagery and stadium imagery, free of charge for: (a) the staging and organising of the competition (and future editions of the competition), (b) non-commercial, promotional and/or editorial purposes (including the use of such material in the multilateral production of television and media promotion and coverage of the competition and on/for UEFA’s digital services), and/or (c) other purposes reasonably designated by UEFA. Any such use may occur after the competition and may include references to and/or branding of third parties, including commercial affiliates, provided that no direct association is made by UEFA between individual players or associations and any commercial affiliate. On request, the associations must supply UEFA free of charge with all appropriate material as well as with the necessary documentation required to allow UEFA to use and exploit such rights in accordance with this paragraph.


The host associations shall ensure that, as a minimum, their ticketing and media accreditation terms and conditions for the matches stipulate that:

  1. no person may conduct any promotional or commercial activity at the match stadium, 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;

  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.
