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

First of all, I hope all of you had a good start into the new year. 2014 promises to be an exciting football year with the World Cup in Brazil coming up this summer. Without any doubt it will as well be an exciting and challenging year for ECA and its Members. New projects are being developed, and new services to Members and communication tools will be added to the already existing ones, contributing to further developing ECA’s role and visibility. To start with, the ECA Match Organiser, launched at the end of 2013, is now fully operative. Additionally, the ECA Administration is now in the process of developing a Club Management Guide, while new Social Media tools - an ECA Facebook Page and Twitter Profile - will be launched very shortly. Finally, a newly created Legal Newsletter will also be published regularly, to the benefit of all Member Clubs. With this being said, we shall not forget our regular events. In two weeks, the 12th ECA General Assembly will be held in Barcelona. After Manchester, Warsaw and Doha, it is already the fourth time that we meet outside Switzerland for our bi-annual meeting. As usual, the plenary session on Tuesday morning will be preceded by working group and subdivision meetings as well as the official dinner on Monday. I am already looking forward to seeing you in Barcelona for the next General Assembly.
