Associate Members

We believe that all our clubs must be able to compete at the highest levels both domestically and internationally, and we have the responsibility to keep their dream and ambition alive. For this reason, the European Leagues is working to protect and enhance the competitive balance as well as to ensure that the basic sporting principles of our beautiful game are always preserved.
