The 53 UEFA member national associations have today unanimously declared their support for UEFA President Michel Platini, the UEFA Executive Committee, the UEFA General Secretary, the UEFA disciplinary bodies and the UEFA administration for their determination to uphold the statutes and regulations of football.

The European national associations call upon both FIFA and the Swiss Football Association (SFV-ASF) to urgently take concrete steps to uphold the statutes and regulations of FIFA, as UEFA has done.

The independent sports justice system is the best guarantor of equality and fairness for all participants in sports.

The European national associations declare that any member of the football family who refuses to accept the rules of the competition should not participate in it.
