Pavelko elected FFU president

Andriy Pavelko – acting president since January – has been elected as the new president of the Football Federation of Ukraine and says a new page is being turned.

Andriy Pavelko has been elected as the new president of the Football Federation of Ukraine (FFU). He has served as interim head of the association since January.

Dnipropetrovsk-born Pavelko headed the football association of Dnipropetrovsk from 2001 and was elected to the FFU executive committee in 2003. The 39-year-old was appointed acting president of the FFU in January when Anatoliy Konkov stepped down. He graduated from the Yaroslav Mudryi National Law University and also serves currently as a member of the Ukrainian parliament.

"We are turning a new page in the history of Ukranian football," said Pavelko. "We need to make some reforms and we have to start right away. I emphasised UEFA's 11 key values in my pre-election programme, and these values have to become fundamental for our activities and those of our regional federations and other members of our team."
