AS Monaco vice-president Juan Sartori has been elected to the European Football Club Association (ECA) board.
Sartori was elected during the ECA’s 30th General Assembly, held in Berlin on Thursday 7th September. Each of the subdivisions, representing the 339 clubs from UEFA’s 55 member federations, elected their subdivision representative to the board.
Subdivision 1, which brings together associate members from Europe’s top six national-level associations (England, Spain, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and France), elected vice-president Sartori to the role.
ECA visited AS Monaco’s Performance centre in February
The ECA was founded in 2008 with the objective of safeguarding and promoting the interests of European football clubs, and during the Berlin General Assembly, women’s clubs were welcomed as members for the first time.
Back in February, the ECA held a two-day event at AS Monaco’s Performance Centre in La Turbie, bringing together 80 club representatives to exchange expertise in the field of youth development. During the visit, Pouya Yaghoubinia, Football Development Manager of the ECA spoke highly of the Principality club’s facilities, stating, “AS Monaco can be placed as the top performance centre, not just in France, but in Europe.”
Make sure you’re never left out of the conversation.
