UEFA European Championship (Scotland) Act 2020


Section 13: Advertising activities, places and prohibited times

26.This section provides a definition of activities that will be treated as advertising. It must be a communication to the public or a section of the public for the purpose of promoting an item, service, trade, business or other concern. An illustrative (but not exhaustive) list of activities which will be treated as advertising if done for that purpose is then set out in subsection (2).

27.Subsection (3) allows the advertising regulations to define further activities which will be treated as advertising. It also allows those regulations to designate areas within the event zones in which the advertising offence set out in section 12 would not apply, and to define “prohibited times” for the purposes of the advertising offence. Such prohibited times will fall within the Championship period as defined in section 1.
