ECA News

At its meeting on 6 October, the ECA Executive Board confirmed the composition of the five ECA Working Groups for the 2015-17 membership cycle.

A record number of 178 applications from no less than 126 different ECA Member Clubs were received for the 105 working group seats available.

The inaugural working group meetings are all set to take place before the end of 2015.

Since the creation of ECA, working groups have been an important cornerstone of ECA's organisational structure. They provide active advice and support to the ECA Executive Board and to ECA representatives participating in committees or working groups at UEFA, FIFA and EU level. Their contribution is key and strategic to the association. In addition, they drive membership engagement and communication across the organisation on key issues, challenges and opportunities.

The European Club Association counts five different working groups, which each deal with one of the following topics: Competitions, Finance, Institutional Relations, Marketing & Communication, Youth.
