The President of the Croatian Football Federation Davor Šuker took part in a session of the UEFA Executive Committee in Ljubljana this week where a number of important decisions were made.
The most important decision for Croatian football is a change to the format of UEFA’s Nation’s League according to which the second round of this competition, in fall 2020, League A, B and C will consist of 16 teams each. This means that Croatia will remain in the elite group, League A.
"That is a brilliant decision for the Croatian Football Federation and the national team because we will be playing against the strongest teams in Europe again, where Croatia, with its quality, belongs. According to football and marketing, this is a huge plus for Croatia and naturally I supported and advocated it with all my heart,” said the President of the Croatian Football Federation Davor Šuker.
The executive committee also adopted a decision on hosting UEFA’s club competitions.
“The Champions League is the most prestigious club competition in the world and that is why the finals are played in the world’s best stadiums. Gazprom Arena in St. Petersburg, Allianz Arena in Munich and Wembley in London are excellent choices for such games and we are expecting exciting events. I am glad that in my Seville the final of the Europa League will be held – in three of four cities I had a chance to play and I know the supporters of the finalist clubs can expect a beautiful outing, beautiful cities and hospitable hosts,” added Šuker.
