As we wrote earlier, at the end of August Győri ETO became a member of European Club Association. This year they held the General Assembly meeting in Geneva, and it is unfortunate that only one, ETO was there from Hungary to honor the General Assembly with his presence ( to avoid misunderstandings: all costs, including flight tickets and accommodation was paid by ECA), where Ferencváros, DVSC and MTK where also invited.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, again elected chairman of the Association especially thanked to Győr for the attendance, and expressed his hope for being an active member, and this club will urging the other Hungarian members to „connecting” in the collective work in the future.
Maybe most of you can remember that some years ago UEFA was not "in discussion" with ECA, but the situation has changed : and now ECA has 191 club members and UEFA completely cooperates with them, and on Monday meeting's participants were three most important persons of UEFA, the chairman Mr.Michel Platini and General Secretary Mr. Gianni Infantino, but also was there Mr.Giorgio Marchetti UEFA Director Competitions. Additionally Platini showed his football knowledge at ECA members football tournament.
There were also some important well known persons next to Rummenigge ,like Mr. Umberto Gandini, Organizing Director of Milan, Mr. Jean-Michel Aulas, President of Lyon, Mr. Sandro Rosell, new President of Barcelona and so many others...
ETO was represented by managing director Tibor Klement, and our webpage chief editor, Győr's international events managing Imre Mathias. The General Assembly meeting program will be detailed in here later, because there are some very useful information for other Hungarian clubs, too.
