Ramiz Mirzayev, the President of AFFA, will participate in the 3rd workshop of UEFA on cooperation with EU, which will start in Brussels on 24 November.

“The meeting will discuss the issues of dialogue between the two European organizations,” Fuad Asadov, the Secretary General of the Association, told Trend. Attending the workshop will be representatives of 35 national federations, included in UEFA, as well as high-rank officials of UEFA and EU. “Speedy development of football and its commercialization required establishment of close relations with European political structures to defense the interests of the continent. UEFA and EU repeatedly discussed such topics as broadcasting rules, free migration of working force, dope, racism,” Asadov underlined.

During the workshop the delegates received free data on strategy of UEFA in regard to EU in 2005.
