Avraham Luzon

Nationality: Israeli
Date of Birth: 24 April 1955
Association president since: 2007

• A senior manager at a bank in his native Israel, Avraham Luzon became chairman of his hometown club Maccabi Petach-Tikva FC in 1991 and went on to take up several positions with the Israel Football Association (IFA), including vice-president and treasurer, before becoming president in 2007.

• Luzon has modernised the administration at the IFA. A married father of three, his main aim remains to steer Israel to a major final tournament for the first time since the 1970 FIFA World Cup in Mexico. He said of his work as IFA president: "I see this role as like being the Prime Minister of the Israeli footballing government."

• Under his leadership, Israel earned the chance to host the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Championship. "This is a great and rare opportunity for us to show the word the real, advanced, enlightened and beautiful Israel, and I have no doubt we will succeed in doing so," Luzon said.
