Leo Windtner has been re-elected as president of the Austrian Football Association (ÖFB), securing his third four-year term after taking the helm in 2009.

The 66-year-old immediately looked to the future at the association's ordinary general assembly in Zell am See. "With almost 300,000 active players, football is the biggest sport in Austria," he explained.

"We want to make sure it stays this way, and we will keep up the good work. We will evaluate, evolve and find a consensus for what's best for the ÖFB together."
