Aleksander Ceferin was re-elected unopposed for a third term as president of UEFA at a meeting of European football’s governing body in Lisbon on Wednesday.

The 55-year-old Slovenian lawyer, first elected in 2016 following the downfall of Frenchman Michel Platini, will remain in the role until 2027.

This is coming after successfully putting an end to the breakaway European Super League idea during his second term, Ceferin was re-elected by acclamation. As a result, he will now preside over the transition to a new Champions League format, which will begin the next season

He will also be able to focus on pursuing the planned introduction of new Financial Fair Play rules, which will see clubs forced to limit spending on player and staff wages, transfers and agents fees to 70 per cent of total revenues by 2025/26.

The UEFA Congress in the Portuguese capital came just a few weeks after Gianni Infantino was re-elected as president of the sport’s world governing body FIFA, also unopposed.
