The proposed changes are the result of constructive and successful consultations. UEFA i FIFA have approved these changes and fully support them. The new Statute and the new Rules of Procedure will bring the necessary clear changes in FSS at all levels of its organizational structure and will ensure full compliance with the legal framework UEFA i FIFA.

After today’s emergency Assemblies of FSS, UEFA and FIFA will of course continue to help FSS in ensuring the implementation of further positive governance reforms. As a next step, all regional federations will have to harmonize their statutes with the FSS Statute.
