Sandro Rosell was member of the ECA Executive Board since September 2010 and represented the association on various UEFA and FIFA committees. He was also chairman of the ECA Marketing & Communication Working Group and held the ECA 2nd Vice-Chairmanship.
The ECA Executive Board deeply regrets the circumstances under which Sandro Rosell left FC Barcelona and would like to thank him for his commitment and invaluable input. The Board wishes him all the best for his personal and professional future.
