Two high-profile UEFA meetings to be held in Malta this week

UEFA_logo_2012Malta will be hosting two high-profile UEFA meetings in the coming days. Presidents and general secretaries of the fifty-four member associations within UEFA will be meeting in the Top Executive Programme (TEP) between Tuesday and Wednesday while the UEFA Executive Committee will be meeting on Thursday and Friday.

This will not be the first time the Malta Football Association hosted meetings of the UEFA Executive Committee as recent as November 2005 and January 2010. The main items on the agenda of this meeting are an update on the EURO 2016 which will be held between the 10th June and 10th July; the appointment of a UEFA special representative on Crimea and the appointment of the Chief Investigator of the Club Financial Control Body.

The Top Executive Programme (TEP) has made a tangible difference for UEFA’s member associations since its inception in 2005. The programme operates on the strategic crossroads between football politics and football development. It supports the member associations’ top executives in their decision-making role by providing, analysing and discussing relevant facts and figures on strategic issues in order to further develop the game specifically in organisational and business aspects.

The meetings will be held at the Westin Dragonara Resort in St. Julian’s. UEFA President Michel Platini arrived in Malta on Monday.
