004 - UEFA Executive Committee statement following meeting in Nyon


“At its inaugural meeting of 2016 at the House of European Football in Nyon, the UEFA Executive Committee decided there will be no UEFA presidential election scheduled until the sports justice appeal bodies, including potentially the Court of Arbitration for Sport, have taken a decision regarding Michel Platini’s suspension.

“The UEFA Executive Committee and UEFA’s national associations would like to state that we have taken note of the decision of the FIFA Ethics Committee to suspend the UEFA President, Michel Platini. We hope his name is cleared and that he can return to the European football family as quickly as possible.”
