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.

66.02

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 2025 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.

66.03

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 any round of the competition and/or the UEFA Women’s Champions League generally, whether through the use of a branded marketing programme or otherwise.

66.04

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.

The commercial rights must be exploited in compliance with all relevant laws and regulations.
