FA's David Gill to stand for FIFA Vice-Presidency

Wed 8th Oct 2014 | Football Governance

David Gill has declared his intention to stand for the role of one of UEFA’s Vice-Presidents on the FIFA Executive Committee.

Following recent FIFA reforms, UEFA members will in March 2015 choose one of their Vice-Presidents from a list of candidates to be proposed by the four British associations. 

As such, The FA will put Gill forward as a candidate for the election, which will be held by European football’s governing body during its Congress in Vienna. 

As FA Vice-Chairman, Gill joined the UEFA Executive Committee in May 2013. If elected to the FIFA ExCo, he would replace the outgoing Jim Boyce of Northern Ireland following the FIFA Congress in May 2015. 

Gill said: “This is a decision I have been thinking about for some time. Although I had initially wanted to focus on developing my relatively new role within UEFA, I believe there is an opportunity, if elected, to use the FIFA position to make a real difference while complementing that ongoing work. 

“Having sounded out many people across the game including fellow board members at Manchester United, The FA and UEFA, I would hope to make a positive contribution and use my candidacy to drive a debate for continued reform.”
