Aleksander Ceferin will run for a third term as UEFA president when it holds its congress in Portugal next year, European football’s governing body said on Saturday.

The news came as UEFA met with its member associations on Saturday in Frankfurt, where the future of the men’s and women’s European Championships and their respective qualifiers were discussed.

“UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin took the opportunity to personally thank all 55 associations for the letters of support for the upcoming elections received in recent weeks, officially confirming that he will run for another term at the next UEFA Congress in Portugal in 2023. “, said UEFA. .

 

Ceferin was elected the seventh UEFA president in 2016 to replace Michel Platini, who was banned from the football administration in 2015 for ethics violations and forced to leave UEFA in 2016 after losing his appeal against the ban.

Ceferin, a Slovenian lawyer, was re-elected unopposed to a four-year term in 2019.

The 54-year-old faced his biggest challenge in April 2021, when some of Europe’s top clubs tried to form a European Super League.

The competition was a direct threat to UEFA’s continental club competition, the Champions League, and Ceferin called on fans, football federations and governments to oppose the “shameful and selfish proposal”.

He also led the charge by UEFA in opposing FIFA’s plans to hold a World Cup every two years instead of four.
