The 20th ECA General Assembly, which took place on 26th & 27th March 2018 in Rome, was a landmark event in the history of ECA, marking a celebration of 10 years of the ‘voice’ of European football clubs.

Representatives from member clubs across the continent gathered to discuss a range of topics on the future of European club football. Discussions included the endorsement of an enhanced set of Financial Fair Play Regulations, updates on the developments of the FIFA Stakeholders Committee’s task force on the future of the transfer system, updates on UEFA Club Competitions, and addresses from the FIFA and UEFA Presidents, respectively. The two-day affair also provided opportunity for ECA Working Groups and Subdivisions to meet, as well as the ECA Executive Board.
