Paris Saint-Germain President Nasser Al-Khelaifi Re-Elected as President of the Association of European Football Clubs


Paris Saint-Germain President Nasser Al-Khelaifi of Qatar was re-elected on Thursday as President of the Association of European Football Clubs for a new four-year term.

Leadership After European Super League Collapse

Al-Khelaifi leads the League after the collapse of the European Super League project in April 2021.

Re-Election to UEFA Executive Committee

Al-Khelaifi was also re-elected as a member of the UEFA Executive Committee, where he has held this position since 2019, in addition to being Vice President.

Progress in Club Decision-Making

“We have come a long way in the last session,” Al-Khelaifi said at the conclusion of the 30th European Club Association General Assembly in Berlin. “There has been tremendous progress in the role of clubs in the decision-making that defines European club football.”

Influential Figure in European Football

Al Khelaifi, 49, is considered one of the most influential people in European football and is also the head of the Qatari media group BN Sports.

Refusal to Join European Super League

Al Khelaifi has gained more prestige thanks to a European Super League storm that nearly unleashed a major crisis on the continent. Paris Saint-Germain, like Bayern Munich, refused to join 12 clubs that were trying to create a special league that would bring them a lot of money.

Replacement of Andrea Agnelli

Nasser Al Khelaifi took over as president of the European Club Association, replacing Andrea Agnelli, president of Juventus, the most prominent supporter of the creation of the Super League.
