LEADING THE WAY FOR FOOTBALL CLUBS IN EUROPE | No. 1 - 2015/16

FOREWORD ///////////////////////////////////////////

After a well-deserved summer break, the 2015/16 European club football season officially kicked off with the qualifying rounds of both the UEFA Champions League and Europa League, and with the thrilling victory of FC Barcelona over Sevilla FC at the UEFA Super Cup in Tbilisi. I hereby take the opportunity to warmly congratulate FC Barcelona for winning yet another title! While the eagerly awaited group stage draws will traditionally be held in Monaco in a few days, the 2015/16 season equally promises to be a notable one off the pitch. In fact, the 15th ECA General Assembly, to be held in Geneva on the 7th and 8th of September, will not only mark the start of a new ECA season, but will also represent the beginning of a new two-year membership cycle. Our biannual event, being the first one of the 2015- 17 cycle, will see the organisation of the ECA Executive Board elections. As usual, the plenary session on Tuesday morning will be preceded by subdivision meetings, the ECA Football Tournament and the official dinner and ECA Awards on Monday afternoon and evening respectively. All details were sent to you a few days ago, and can equally be found in the following pages of this newsletter. I wish you an enjoyable read and I am already looking forward to seeing you all in Geneva for the start of the new ECA Season!
