Agnelli elected ECA President

Juventus President Andrea Agnelli has been elected as the new chairman of the European Club Association.

The ECA replaced the G-14 in 2008, and exists to directly represent football clubs and safeguard and promote their interests on European club football matters.

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge served as chairman for the past nine years, but announced last month that he wouldn’t stand for reelection.

Lazio joined the body this year, joining Milan, Fiorentina, Inter, Juventus, Napoli, Roma, Udinese and Sampdoria as the Serie A clubs in the group.

Today the members of the group voted for the Executive Board, and the Bianconeri President has been elected as the new chairman.

He is the first Italian to hold the role as either G-14 or ECA chairman.
