European Club Association requests immediate changes at FIFA
Wednesday, 01 06 2011
The European Club Association (ECA) has taken note of the outcome of the FIFA Presidential Elections today in Zurich.
Commenting on the elections, ECA Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge called for a drastic change of FIFA's governance structure and stated:
"The recent happenings have once more proven that FIFA needs a change in its whole structure. As Chairman of the European Club Association, I request FIFA to immediately introduce democratic and transparent structures and procedures. European clubs will no longer accept that they do not participate in the decision-making when it comes to club-related matters. We will closely follow FIFA's development in this respect in the future and take appropriate measures, if there is no improvement."
