As you can imagine, from a personal perspective, working in European football is up there with the year’s highlights. With six games in the summer of 2019, that also meant half a dozen UEFA Delegate’s meetings.
These take place on the morning of the game, and it’s where all the final details relating to the fixture are worked through, so that everything will go smoothly on the evening.
The lead image was taken at the FC Copenhagen stadium, prior to the UEFA Champions League game between the hosts and The New Saints FC. The shot was taken by Brian Jones, the latter’s official photographer.
I always keep the notes from the meetings and they form a designated category in my own personal memorabilia collection HERE.
I also produced a short video from the morning of the meeting, that you can view below.
