Ceferin unopposed for 3rd term as UEFA president

NYON, Switzerland (AP) — UEFA president Aleksander Čeferin will not face any challengers as he seeks a third term leading European soccer’s governing body. UEFA says the deadline for candidates passed Thursday with Čeferin the only name on the ballot for the presidency at the UEFA Congress on April 5. Čeferin beat Michael van Praag by 42 votes to 13 in 2016 to become president and was re-elected unopposed in 2019.
