EPFL AND UEFA WELCOME NEW MEMORANUDUM OF UNDERSTANDING European Leagues’ representative joins UEFA Executive Committee as full member

The Association of European Professional Football Leagues (EPFL) welcomes UEFA Congress’ unanimous decision to include the European Leagues as official stakeholder in UEFA’s structures and decision-making bodies. In the afternoon, UEFA Executive Committee approved the new Memorandum of  Understanding between the two organisations which among other things grants one full member position of UEFA Executive Committee to a representative of the EPFL.

Following the amendments to the UEFA statutes approved by the UEFA Congress earlier today, the EPFL will nominate a representative to sit on the UEFA Executive Committee. This representative will require ratification at the next Ordinary UEFA Congress, to be held on 26 February 2018 in Slovakia.

Following the announcement EPFL Chairman Lars-Christer Olsson stated: “This is the first day of a new era for professional football in Europe. EPFL and UEFA are committed to work together to improve the governance of our game. As the organisers of club competitions at domestic level we look forward with enthusiasm to sharing our expertise and knowledge with UEFA and other stakeholders to work and solve together the issues and challenges that confront professional football today.”
