Gazidis To Replace David Gill At ECA

Wed 28th Nov 2012 | Football Governance

Ivan Gazidis, CEO of Arsenal Football Club will replace David Gill on the UEFA Professional Football Strategy Council it has been announced.

Following an ECA Executive Board meeting in Moscow on the 27th of November, the decision was made to appoint Gazidis as ECA representative on the UEFA Professional Football Strategy Council. Consequently, he will also take up a seat on the ECA Executive Board.

This appointment comes following the decision of Manchester United CEO, David Gill, to step down from his position on the ECA Executive Board. Gill recently announced his candidacy for election to the UEFA Executive Committee in the coming year.

Gazidis has been actively involved within ECA since its creation in 2008. He is currently chairman of the ECA Legal Advisory Panel and member of the ECA Competitions Working Group.

Commenting on the appointment, ECA Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, said: “I am pleased to welcome Ivan Gazidis on the ECA Executive Board.

“His experience and distinct football knowledge will add a lot of value to ECA and European club football as a whole. At the same time, I would like to thank David Gill for his invaluable contribution to ECA over the last three years.

“On behalf of the ECA Executive Board, I wish him all the best for his future professional and personal life.”

Gazidis said: “I am delighted to be joining these important groups which are hugely influential in the future direction of the game in Europe.

“I am looking forward to representing the top European clubs in many important debates as we move ahead.”
