Ceferin will no longer run for the UEFA presidency at the end of his mandate in 2027. This was announced by UEFA's number one himself despite the OK following the vote for a continuation until 2031.
Aleksander Ceferin , president of UEFA , has announced that he will no longer run for president in 2027 , when his mandate expires. In fact he will no longer continue his journey. He announced it himself during the Paris congress, effectively excluding the possibility of a fourth mandate until 2031 . A possibility, the latter, which had become reality after the changes made to the UEFA statute and which had seen Zvonimir Boban resign from the executive as 'Head of football' because he did not agree.
Just today this new text was being voted on which effectively establishes that any mandate carried out or started before 2017 (Ceferin was elected for the first time in September 216) does not count. The previous 12-year limit is in fact valid only for those who run after the rule came into force , not for those who were elected before, as happened to Ceferin himself. However, no one expected that precisely following this change Ceferin could give up, and instead it was he himself who announced it.
Therefore, the last three years for him at UEFA for one of the most discussed presidents, especially due to the personal battle he has experienced since 2021 to stem the phenomenon of the Super League ready to start. “Some people are trying to change football despite its success , they say they are the saviors of football, they play victims when in fact they are predators – he explained in his first conference after the ruling of the European Court of Justice which in fact ruled favor of the promoters of the Super League – They confuse monopoly with unity”.

Ceferin never misses an opportunity to attack the various Perez and Agnelli, promoters of the new competition reserved for clubs, without ever naming them: “They talk about a free market but they know nothing about freedom of speech – he continued in his long speech – We live moments difficult but unity is the only thing that can save us, at every level.” Many expected that after Boban's resignation there would be unity in the vote and instead in the end the new Statute was approved but despite this Ceferin will end his mandate in 2027.
