UEFA EURO 2028 - commercial rights protection: consultation - easy read

This consultation paper seeks input from street traders, media owners, and businesses in event zones potentially impacted by EURO 2028 measures. We also seek input from residents and groups across Scotland on various measures, like street trading and ticket touting.

Street Trading

Street trading means selling or offering to sell things or services in an open public place.

Street trading without a license was banned in event zones for EURO 2020. This was done to stop event zones getting too busy.

We expect this to happen again for EURO 2028. There would be an event zone around Hampden Park and an event zone in part of Glasgow City centre.

These rules would not be for everyone. Selling newspapers, busking, and transport services were allowed in event zones during EURO 2020.

People found guilty of street trading without a license during EURO 2020 could be fined up to £20,000. We think this should be the same for EURO 2028.

We think Police should make sure laws on street trading are followed.

There should be guides on street trading. These would help people understand and follow the rules.
