• Raised in Italy, Peter Gilliéron moved to Switzerland with his family at the age of 13, where he played school football and went on to study law, earning his degree in 1978. He was first involved in football as president of Berne-based FC Minerva in the 1990s.

• Elected as president of the SFV-ASF in 2009, he said: "I see the election as reward for my achievements in all those years as general secretary. My goal is to take forward football in the whole country; western Switzerland and Ticino too. The SFV-ASF should help in fostering integration." He was re-elected unanimously for a third term of office in May 2013.
