Distinguished Speaker Seminar: Aleksander Čeferin, Rebuilding the Reputation of International Football

Aleksander Čeferin will discuss rebuilding the reputation of international football and his new four-year term plan for UEFA.

Football, the ‘beautiful game’, is the world’s most popular sport, with an estimated 4bn fans worldwide. Yet while the game is adored, how the game is governed has had a more chequered history. Two and a half years ago, a major corruption scandal at FIFA forced the resignation of Michel Platini as president of UEFA. His successor, Aleksander Čeferin, a Slovenian lawyer and moderniser, is systematically working through a plan to improve UEFA’s governance.

In this Distinguished Speaker Event, Oxford’s Rupert Younger will ask Aleksander Čeferin about his new four-year term plan for UEFA, how he is working to improve the reputation of ‘the beautiful game’, and field an open question and answer session on football and its governance.
