Gabriele Gravina has been elected to the UEFA Executive Committee. In Montreux, for the 45th UEFA Congress, the FIGC President received 53 votes out of a possible 55. He will be on the Executive Committee for a four-year term, alongside Zbigniew Boniek (Poland), Alexander Dyukov (Russia), David Gill (England), Rainer Koch (Germany), Karl-Erik Nilsson (Sweden), Just Spee (Netherlands) and Servet Yardımcı (Turkey).
“I’m really happy,” Gravina declared, “such a wide consensus in my favour is a huge personal honour and a brilliant recognition of FIGC policy throughout the past two years. I want to thank the UEFA President Ceferin and all of my colleagues at the FIGC, who wanted to show me this level of trust during such a difficult time for European football. Some big challenges await us and my duty will be towards an organic growth for football throughout the continent.”
Italy is also celebrating the re-election of Evelina Christillin as a female member of the FIFA Council, with 33 votes from 55.
