In the capital's House of Football, delegates at the extraordinary congress of the Ukrainian Football Association elected a new leader for the organization. The former forward and head coach of the Ukrainian national team, Andriy Shevchenko, has become the new head.

This information was reported by the official website of the UAF.

 

 

The winner of the "Ballon d'Or 2004" has taken the helm of Ukrainian football. The election of the association's president was the third item on the agenda of the XXVI UAF Congress.

Shevchenko was the only candidate for the position of president, and before the vote on his candidacy, the congress delegates unanimously supported the proposal to recognize the end of the term of his predecessor, former UAF head Andriy Pavelko. Shevchenko received 93 votes from the delegates, with 1 delegate choosing to abstain.

 

 

"I am grateful once again, a very significant responsibility. We have very large tasks ahead of us. As you all know, it is to do everything possible for football to develop in Ukraine under such very difficult conditions – full-scale war. We must do everything for this. Prepare the national team, the Olympic team, futsal, women's football. These are all very important directions," said the new president of the UAF.

Shevchenko also announced the association's transition under his leadership to transparent activities. The team of new officials is ready to work, and an independent audit will assess the work of the previous administration. The audit will be conducted by Crowe.
