David Griffiths

Nationality: Welsh
Date of birth: 2 December 1945
Association president since: 2015

• David Griffiths has enjoyed a 50-year career in football administration, holding positions with the Football Association of Wales (FAW), UEFA and FIFA since being voted onto the FAW council in 1992. Griffiths also currently sits as second vice-chairman on the UEFA Stadium and Security Committee. As a member of FIFA, he also sits on the board of the International Football Association Board (IFAB).

• A player in the local domestic leagues in his younger days, Griffiths' road into football administration began with his local team, as he became secretary of Maesteg Park AFC in 1965. He held the position for the next 45 years, and went on to become one of the longest serving club secretaries in the history of the domestic game in Wales as a result.

• Upon his election as president, Griffiths expressed his desire to see Wales continue to emerge from the shadows and establish themselves as a leading football nation. “Hopefully we will host more International events in Wales,” he said. “We need to be present on the International stage. Wales is a small footballing nation and we have to continue working hard to stay competitive. We can only succeed by doing that together. We also have to create the infrastructure that will help us develop talents further.”
