On the 8th of April ECA representatives met in Barcelona with Spanish Member of the European Parliament Santiago Fisas.
ECA was represented by ECA Vice-Chairman Sandro Rosell, General Secretary Michele Centenaro & EU & Public Affairs Advisor David Frommer.
Mr. Fisas has been tasked by the European Parliament to draft a report in response to the European Commission's Communication on Sport adopted in January. The meeting allowed ECA to present its views on a number of issues highlighted in the Communication and which Mr. Fisas is expected to include in his report including: governance, specificity of sport, agents, the transfer system and youth development. The discussion proved fruitful with Mr. Fisas engaging actively on the different topics under discussion.
ECA will continue to present its views to colleagues of Mr. Fisas in the European Parliament in the coming weeks and months who will be involved in shaping the final report which is expected to be adopted by the full Parliament by the end of the year.
