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

Dear ECA Member, As we move into the month of November, the season is well underway with some clubs having already clinched their spots in the next round of UEFA Club Competitions. As is the case on the pitch, much has also occurred off the pitch, and I am also pleased to inform you about ECA events coming up later this month. ECA representatives on the UEFA ExCo were ratified by the 13th UEFA Extraordinary Congress before they attended their first meeting as full members later that day on 20th September. This landmark decision outlines the importance of clubs in the European footballing landscape. Also concerning UEFA, the 2016/17 payments from UEFA Club Competitions were distributed to clubs. The figure stands at nearly EUR 2bn which is a welcome increase on the previous season. Additionally, after the success of last year’s ECA Workshop on Women’s Club Football, the ECA Women’s Football Committee has organised another workshop focusing on the promotion and development of the women’s game, this year to be held in Florence. As well as this, we have the ECA Youth Conference and the first session of the second edition of the ECA Club Management Programme both taking place this month. Finally, ECA Working Groups are set to meet for the first time this membership cycle. I trust you will have an enjoyable read and I look forward to seeing you very soon. Sincerely,
