A.4.1

Each member of the UEFA Executive Committee entitled to take part in the voting procedure ranks three (3) bidders in order of preference. The preferred bidder is given rank one (1), the second choice is given rank two (2), and the third choice is given rank three (3).

A.4.2

Points are then allocated by the scrutineers based on each voter’s ranking preference in each ballot, starting with one (1) point for the least preferred bidder, two (2) points for the second choice, and five (5) points for the preferred bidder.

A.4.3

A vote is valid if and only if:

  1. a rank between one (1) and three (3) has been attributed to each of the ranked bidders; and

  2. different ranks have been attributed to each of the ranked bidders.

A.4.4

If a bidder obtains an absolute majority (i.e. more than half) of points deriving from the valid votes cast in the first round of ballots, that bidder is selected as the host association.

A.4.5

If no bidder obtains an absolute majority (i.e. more than half) of points deriving from the valid votes cast in the first round of ballots, the two bidders having scored the highest number of points during such first round are admitted to the second round of ballots. If the two bidders to be admitted to such second round cannot be determined during the first round, then an intermediate round of ballots involving only the bidders with a number of points equal to the second-ranked bidder of the first round will take place to identify the two bidders to be admitted to the second round; if, in this intermediate round of ballots, all bidders receive an equal number of points, then the chair of the meeting has the casting vote.

A.4.6

The bidder that obtains the highest number of points during the second round of ballots is selected as the host association.

A.4.7

In the event of a tie during the second round of ballots, the chair of the meeting has the casting vote.
