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.

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.”
