Each participating association must appoint a dedicated English-speaking press officer to coordinate media matters with UEFA and the media in accordance with UEFA’s rules and regulations. The association’s press officer must attend all media activities and ensure that the team meets all its media obligations in connection with each match.


Teams must cooperate to the fullest extent possible with access and interview requests from UEFA media platforms before, during and after the competition. Each team must provide UEFA with access to all players in their squad, the head coach and the assistant coach for a squad access day in order to gather the following content for host broadcaster operations and UEFA digital platforms:

  • a green screen filming session with all players, the head coach and the assistant coach;

  • a photography session, at two stations, with all players, the head coach and the assistant coach;

  • a digital/corporate content session with ten players and the head coach;

  • an interview session with two players and the head coach.

UEFA and the association must agree in advance on the date, time and location of the squad access day and on which players will be made available. Each team’s squad access day must take place no later than four days before the team’s first match in the finals unless alternative arrangements are agreed by the team and UEFA.


Each team must make two players, or its head coach and one player, available two days before each match for sit-down interviews with UEFA. If a selected player becomes unable to participate, the association must inform UEFA as soon as reasonably possible and must ensure that another player, or a suitable alternative accepted by UEFA, is made available as a replacement.


For the finals, all team media activities at the match stadium are coordinated by UEFA.


Access devices for matches in the finals and official media activities are managed and distributed by UEFA.


In accordance with UEFA’s specifications, each team must hold a daily media activity, in the form of a press conference, mixed-zone interviews or an alternative format agreed with UEFA in advance. In addition, teams may hold only one fully closed training session before each match. All other training sessions must be open to the media for at least 15 minutes.


For the finals, the following restrictions apply:

  1. No media representatives are allowed on the field of play before, during or after the match, with the exception of UEFA-approved camera crews and audiovisual rights holders conducting UEFA-approved activities including, but not limited to, MD-1, pre- and post-match presentations and interviews.
