Eintracht Frankfurt welcomes UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin

Eintracht Frankfurt

In the context of the UEFA Europa League Semi-final, the UEFA President together with his top management visit Eintracht Frankfurt.

With the previous matches highlighting the absolutely dedicated supporters following the team throughout Europe, the visit is both an expression of respect for such commitment of the fans as well as UEFA’s interest in the specificities of the club itself.

The UEFA President will get a first-hand account of the club with its remarkable governance model and contemplated sustainable growth in recent years. The new infrastructure and holistic European concept of Eintracht Frankfurt authentically displays its history, internationality and philosophy. For the first time a UEFA President visits a match of Eintracht Frankfurt.

Axel Hellmann said: “We are absolutely proud to host UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin and welcome him to our ProfiCamp and stadium. Off-the-pitch, this is a defining moment for the club and could be combined with a historic achievement on-the-pitch in the UEL Semi-final. For the UEFA President to inform himself first-hand about our club is a good sign for us that he truly cares about European football.”
