|III Trophy, Plaques and Medals|
The original trophy, which is used for the official presentation ceremony at the final and at other official events approved by UEFA, remains in UEFA’s keeping and ownership at all times. A full-size replica trophy, the UEFA European Football Championship winners trophy, is awarded to the winning association.
Any association which wins the trophy three consecutive times or five times in total receives a special mark of recognition. Once a cycle of three successive wins or five in total has been completed, the association concerned starts a new cycle from zero.
Replica trophies awarded to winners of the UEFA European Football Championship (past and current) must remain within the relevant association’s control at all times and must not leave the association’s country without UEFA’s prior written consent. Associations must not permit a replica trophy to be used in any context where a third party (including, without limitation, associations’ sponsors and other commercial partners) is granted visibility or in any other way which could lead to an association between any third party and the replica trophy and/or the competition. Associations must comply with any trophy use guidelines that the UEFA administration may issue from time to time.
Associations may not, and may not permit any third party to, develop, create, use, sell or distribute any promotional materials or merchandise bearing any representation of the trophy or any replica thereof (including, without limitation, trophy lift images) or use any such representation in a manner that could lead to an association between any third party and the trophy, replica trophy and/or the competition.
Each association that competes in the final tournament receives a commemorative plaque.
Each defeated semi-finalist receives a plaque.
The finalists receive a plaque.
Forty gold medals are presented to the winning team and 40 silver medals to the runner-up. 40 bronze medals are presented to the defeated semi-finalists. Additional medals may not be produced.
