UEFA to elect new president in September


UEFA will elect a new president at a meeting in Athens on September 14.

Michel Platini announced his intention to resign from the position after failing to have his ban from all football-related activity overturned by the Court Of Arbitration for Sport.

The Frenchman appealed to CAS after he was banned for eight years after receiving a 'disloyal payment' from then FIFA president Sepp Blatter in 2011 but he only succeeded in having the suspension reduced to four years.

UEFA have been without a president since Platini was suspended but the 55 national federations will vote on his successor at an extraordinary congress.

The successful candidate will complete Platini's term, which runs until March 2019, with Slovenian federation president Aleksander Ceferin and UEFA vice-presidents Angel Maria Villar and Michael van Praag among those tipped to stand for election.

The deadline for candidates to register is July 20.
