Street trading

Section 6: Ban on outdoor trading within event zones

17.This section makes it an offence to trade within an event zone at particular times during the period of the European Championship in 2020 (the “trading offence”). Indoor trading (i.e. trading in a building) is not covered by the offence. The Scottish Ministers are given a power to make further provision about trading within event zones which can be used to set out further exceptions to the offence. The offence does not apply to any trading by UEFA although the trading regulations may require it to comply with prescribed conditions.
