UEFA president Ceferin says won’t stand for re-election in 2027

Aleksander Ceferin said Thursday he would not seek a fourth term as UEFA president in 2027 despite the approval of controversial reforms that would enable him to extend his mandate.

I decided around six months ago that I’m not planning to run in 2027 anymore,” Ceferin said at a press conference following the UEFA Congress in Paris. “The reason is that after some time, every organisation needs fresh blood, but mainly because I was away from my family for seven years now.READ MORE

Ceferin’s announcement came shortly after UEFA member nations voted overwhelmingly in favour of a series of statute amendments, including a measure that would have allowed Ceferin to potentially stay in his role until 2031.

“I intentionally didn’t want to disclose my thoughts before, because firstly, I wanted to see the real face of some people and I saw it,” said Ceferin, first elected in 2016 following the downfall of Frenchman Michel Platini. “I have a beautiful life in football, I have a beautiful life outside of football as well.”
