Aleksander Čeferin re-elected UEFA President until 2027

UEFA Congress in Lisbon unanimously confirms Mr Čeferin for a new four-year mandate. The 47th UEFA Congress, held Wednesday in Lisbon, has unanimously re-elected Aleksander Čeferin as UEFA President for the period 2023–27.

In his acceptance speech, Mr Čeferin, who was the only candidate, thanked the delegates for their support. “It is a great honour but mainly it is a great responsibility towards… football,” said the President. “I will do my best not to disappoint.”

The 55-year-old Mr Čeferin has served as UEFA’s seventh president since 2016, when he replaced former French international Michel Platini. He was subsequently re-elected in 2019.

In closing the 2023 edition of UEFA Congress, Mr Čeferin echoed the pledge that he delivered after his first election in Athens: “I promise you that I will never forget that we are here because of football. We will put football first, always. I will do whatever I can to protect football together with you.”
