UEFA's administration is responsible for the day-to-day business of running European football's governing body.

Our activities

Under the leadership of General Secretary Theodore Theodoridis, our administration is responsible for:

  • implementing the decisions of our Congress, Executive Committee and President;
  • organising official UEFA meetings: congresses, conferences and committees;
  • managing operational business including organising and marketing competitions (e.g. the UEFA Champions League), working with our 55 member associations and other football stakeholders, reinvesting our revenue back into football development activities, and implementing our sustainability strategy

Our headquarters

The UEFA administration is based at our headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, which officially opened for business on 5 October 1999.

Prior to our current home on the shores of Lake Geneva, we were located in Paris (until 1959); the Swiss federal capital, Bern (1959-1995), and temporary offices in Nyon (1995-September 1999). In October 2010, we inaugurated La Clairière, a new UEFA administrative building, while a third , Bois-Bougy, opened in March 2012.

Since April 2010, we also manage the Colovray Sports Centre, adjacent to our headquarters. Its stadium includes a main football pitch which we use to host UEFA events including the Youth League finals as well as track and field facilities.
