The UEFA Congress in Lisbon today unanimously confirms Mr Čeferin for a new four-year mandate. The 47th UEFA Congress, held Wednesday confirms Aleksander Čeferin will be UEFA President for the period 2023–27.
while making 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."
