Football: UEFA Executive prepare for final decision on Gibraltar's application

The UEFA Executive Committee holds its final meeting of a hectic year at the House of European Football in Nyon, Switzerland on 7/8 December.

Variety of topics
UEFA's supreme executive body will deal with a variety of topics affecting European club and national-team football, including an application by the Gibraltar FA for provisional UEFA membership. A decision on the matter was postponed at the last Executive Committee meeting in Ljubljana, Slovenia in October following the submission of fresh information.

Club issues
Club football is also on the agenda. The UEFA club competition access list for the 2007/08 season will be examined, together with requests by the associations of San Marino and Andorra for one place in the UEFA Champions League. Terms of reference for the new European Professional Football Strategy Forum promoting and developing dialogue on the European club game will also be discussed.

Tender process
In addition, the Executive Committee will hear the outcome of the tender process for ex-Europe television rights to UEFA EURO 2008™ in Austria and Switzerland in two summers' time, and will approve the regulations of the 2007 Meridian Cup which promotes footballing co-operation between Europe and Africa under the auspices of UEFA and its African sister confederation, the ConfĂ©dĂ©ration Africaine de Football (CAF).

Press conference
The meeting is scheduled to end at 12.00CET on Friday 8 December. A press conference will be held immediately after the end of the meeting at approximately 12.15CET at UEFA headquarters. Members of the media interested in attending the press conference are requested to inform UEFA Media Services via email to before midday on Tuesday 5 December.
