Christian Andreasen

Nationality: Faroese
Date of birth: 10 December 1959
Association president since: 2010

• A goalkeeper for B68 Toftir's Tofta Ítróttarfelag in his youth, Christian Andreasen studied law at the University of Copenhagen and went into practice back in the Faroe Islands; he has since been on the board of directors of several large companies, often as chairman.

• Elected to the committee of the Faroe Islands Football Association (FSF) for the first time on a two-year mandate in 1986, he worked as a legal advisor to the governing body before returning to the committee in 2002; he was elected president in 2010, and was re-elected for a third term in February 2017.

• During a visit to UEFA headquarters, Andreasen said: "Interest in football in the Faroe Islands is huge. We have a population of 50,000 and 5,000 active football players - 10% of the population; that might be a record. Our goal is to maintain this interest, provide better facilities and try to make our mark in international football."
