European soccer’s governing body UEFA has launched a tender process covering match ball and apparel rights specifically for its women’s competitions across the 2025-30 cycle.

The competitions and events covered by the cycle include five editions of the clubs' UEFA Women’s Champions League, the Women’s European Championship national teams tournament in 2029, and various age-group tournament editions.

The tender process is set to go live on April 8, with a deadline for bids of May 17 at 12:00, Central European Time. Interested parties should contact Dennis is a senior licensing manager at UEFA.

The category packages involved in the tender, UEFA has said, “will comprise the right to produce and market both the official match ball and / or sports equipment and branded apparel (including footwear) for the relevant competitions.”

UEFA launched a general tender for global commercial rights covering its 2025-26 to 2029-30 women’s soccer cycle in late January, but has now begun a more specific search.

UEFA’s women’s national team competitions currently have their media rights sold by the CAA Eleven agency, while Two Circles handles sponsorship rights to all UEFA women's competitions.
