UEFA Elections to take centre stage at Paris Congress
The XXXV Ordinary UEFA Congress will be held in Paris, France on 22 March 2011, with senior representatives from UEFA’s 53 member national associations voting on a variety of issues on the agenda.
In addition to the address to delegates by UEFA president Michel Platini highlighting the past year’s activities within European football’s governing body, the Congress will feature a series of elections – UEFA president, UEFA Executive Committee (seven members) and FIFA Executive Committee (one vice-president and one member). The chairmen of UEFA’s standing committees will also report on their respective committee’s work.
Michel Platini has been UEFA President since 2007
The Congress will also be asked to approve the reports of the UEFA president / Executive Commitee and the UEFA administration for the 2009/10 period, as well as UEFA’s financial accounts for 2009/10, the strategic financial outlook until 2015/16 and the budget for the 2011/12 financial year.

UEFA's objectives
