“SIGA welcomes the recent news that the UEFA Executive Committee have unanimously approved a series of good governance reform proposals for the good of European football and integrity of the sport. These proposals reflect SIGA’s Universal Standards on Good Governance and we would be delighted to collaborate with UEFA and support them on this path of reform.

“SIGA comprises of more than 80 international multi-industry supporters. It is the only organisation to bring together sport, governments, academia, international organisations, sponsors, business, rights holders, NGOs and professional services companies, from every region in the world, around a common cause of fostering greater integrity throughout sport.

“The UEFA progress to date shows there are more like-minded leaders who are committed to protecting the integrity of sport and who care deeply about its future. We are confident that through a collaborative approach with all stakeholders in the international sports movement, SIGA can help usher in a new era for sport.”
