HELSINKI, April 5. /TASS/. The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) decided to allocate one million euros ($1.07 million) as financial assistance to each of its member federation for the purpose of further development, UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin announced.
Ceferin, who was elected as the new leader of the European governing body of football last September, said the one million euros financial allocation to each of the 55 members of UEFA was a "solidarity payment."
Slovenia’s Ceferin, 48, was elected the new president of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) on September 14, 2016. He won the election at an extraordinary UEFA congress in Athens having received 42 votes, while his only rival, UEFA vice president Michael van Praag, secured 13 votes.
The Slovenian football official succeeded Frenchman Michel Platini, who resigned in early 2016 after being suspended from all football related activities for four years. The new UEFA president was elected for the term of two and a half years until the next regular congress of the European governing body of football.
