European Club Association(ECA) is celebrating their 10th anniversary.
ECA was establised on 21st of January 2008 when their Association created through the signing of the first Memorandum of Understanding with UEFA. According to ECA’s Chairman Andrea Agnelli, on that day UEFA began to recognise that clubs were a credited counterpart in the building of the future of football.
Ten years ago ECA started from clean sheet, but for now ECA has managed to establish itself as a serious and well-respected stakeholder on the European football landscape and has significantly influenced the development of European club football and its governance structure. Agnelli told, that ECA’s achievements and remarkable evolution would not have been possible without its member clubs’ commitment, contribution and active participation.
