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

At the beginning of the month, you were 149 Member Clubs gathering in Geneva at the occasion of the 13th ECA General Assembly, which marked the official beginning of the 2014/15 ECA season. I would like to take the opportunity to thank you once more for your participation in our biannual event. As ever, you will shortly receive our GA Issue which summarises the two-day event in detail. Moving forward, as per tradition the September and October agenda is quite filled with events, with several meetings taking place at both UEFA and FIFA level. The UEFA Executive Committee notably announced the distribution mechanism of the prize money withheld due to non-compliance with FFP rules, the new format for the UEFA Youth League, the UEFA EURO 2016 solidarity contributions to clubs and the venues of the UEFA EURO 2020. At FIFA level, among other things, the Executive Committee took the decision that third-party ownership of players’ economic rights (TPO) shall be banned with a transitional period. Needless to say that you will be regularly updated on the evolution of the matter. As you can already see, the 2014/15 season will undeniably be full of action on and off the pitch. Therefore, I wish you all the best for the season and an enjoyable read!
