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

Dear ECA Member, As the 2016/17 season has come to a close, we can look back on what has been a busy final few weeks of the season for ECA events and meetings. Most notably was the first three sessions of the newly established Platform for Executives’ Consultation (PEC) Meetings. The sessions in Munich, Rome and Copenhagen were incredibly informative and the ECA Executive Board would like to thank the attendees for their invaluable feedback. The past few weeks has also seen displays of the strong relationship between ECA and UEFA. The UEFA Club Competitions SA was formally created as the Board of Administration held its first meeting recently in Cardiff. This collaborative effort between ECA and UEFA will see the company advise the UEFA Club Competitions Committee on all relevant business matters. As well as this, the two organisations jointly organised a Legal Workshop in Marseille. It was an event like no other in bringing together clubs from across the continent to present and discuss the latest legal developments affecting European football clubs. We have also recently concluded the first edition of the ECA Club Management Programme. Congratulations to the inaugural graduates of the course, and we are looking forward to building on its success by making the second edition even more essential for executives at football clubs. Finally, I would like to wish all of you an enjoyable summer break and I look forward to seeing you again for the 2017/18 season. Sincerely,
