Mircea Sandu wins new term in UEFA’s Executive Committee

Romanian Football Federation (FRF) President Mircea Sandu has won a new four-year term within UEFA’s Executive Committee during the elections that took place during UEFA’s annual Congress in Paris.


Sandu won 15 votes in the run-up. This is Mircea Sandu’s second term within the Executive Committee after the one won in 2007. The FRF President also made a short review of his previous term: “Romania won the right to host a U-19 final tournament; a 55,000-seat stadium is being built in Romania, a stadium where fans and the national team’s players will enjoy excellent conditions. We’ve also managed to build a base in Buftea, using funds from FRF, UEFA and FIFA. I haven’t done anything for me in my four-year term, I did everything for Romanian football,” he stated for realitatea.net.


MICHEL PLATINI REELECTED UEFA PRESIDENT FOR SECOND TERM


UEFA President Michel Platini has been re-elected for a second four-year term at the XXXV Ordinary UEFA Congress in Paris. Mr. Platini, who was the only candidate, was re-elected by acclamation by delegates from UEFA’s 53 member national associations, according to uefa.com. In his address to the Congress, Mr. Platini highlighted the achievements since his election in 2007, and issued a call for the football community to help shape the game’s future in a positive manner.


Mr. Platini spoke of commitments and pledges that he had made four years ago, and which had been achieved. For example, the UEFA Executive Committee’s responsibilities had been expanded, committees had returned to the centre of UEFA’s activities, and the 53 national associations had grown in influence and status. Football’s social role had been reinforced with the launching of the Respect campaign and the development of UEFA’s social responsibility portfolio.
