UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin announced his decision not to opt for re-election at the end of his current term in 2027, despite the recent amendment to the constitution approved by the UEFA Congress that would have allowed him to do so.
Ceferin made his determination public during a press conference following the Congress in Paris, revealing that he had made this resolution about six months ago and had shared it with his family and some friends.
The broad majority of Congress supported the amendment of the statutes of the European federation, which previously limited the maximum number of terms of office for the president to three.
Also, at the meeting held in Paris, the UEFA Congress approved the election of Miguel Ángel Gil Marín, CEO of Atlético de Madrid, and Nasser Al-Khelaïfï, President of PSG, as members of the Executive Committee. Both will represent the European Club Association (ECA) for a term of four years.
Al-Khelaifi, who has been president of the ECA since April 2021, was already part of the Executive Board representing the clubs, while the German Karl-Heinze Rummenigge will step down to be replaced by Miguel Ángel Gil.
In addition, at the 48th UEFA Congress, the inclusion of Pedro Proença, president of the European Leagues, as a member of the Executive was confirmed. Proença was elected to this position on 30 November 2023.
