The licensor must appoint a licensing manager who is responsible for the licensing administration.


The tasks of the licensing administration include:

  1. preparing, implementing and further developing the club licensing system;

  2. providing administrative support to the decision-making bodies;

  3. assisting, advising and monitoring the licensees during the season;

  4. informing UEFA of any event occurring after the licensing decision that constitutes a significant change to the information previously submitted to the licensor, including a change of legal form, legal group structure (including change of ownership) or identity;

  5. serving as the contact point for and sharing expertise with the licensing departments of other UEFA member associations and with UEFA itself.


At least one member of licensing administration or an external financial expert must have a financial background and a diploma in accountancy/auditing recognised by the appropriate national body (e.g. national trade association), or must have several years’ experience in the above matters (a “recognition of competence”).
