Nilsson gets renewed Swedish mandate

Karl-Erik Nilsson has been re-elected as president of the Swedish Football Association (SvFF), the former FIFA referee having taken over from Lars-Åke Lagrell last year.

Karl-Erik Nilsson has been re-elected as president of the Swedish Football Association (SvFF) at its annual general meeting.

The 55-year old Nilsson took over as SvFF president last year, replacing Lars-Åke Lagrell, who had been at the helm since 1991. A former FIFA referee, Nilsson is already looking ahead to July when Sweden takes centre-stage as host of UEFA Women's EURO 2013. In his blog on the SvFF site, Nilsson wrote: "We can all look forward to a fabulous EURO summer from 10 July until the final at the national stadium, Friends Arena on 28 July. It will be world-class football."
