Tebas will replace Lars-Christer Olsson, outgoing president of European leagues and former president of the Swedish professional league.

Tebas said: “This is a responsibility that I will assume with pride and with the commitment to continue fighting for the growth of national leagues, which are the true motor of football.”

The appointment, already approved by the LaLiga Delegate Committee, will be ratified at the 45th Ordinary UEFA Congress scheduled for 20th April.
