UEFA is the administrative body for soccer clubs in Europe and one of six continental confederations of world football's governing body FIFA.
UEFA consists of fifty-four national associations members. It organizes club competitions, for which it also controls the prize money, regulations and media rights. The organization's president is former French player Michel Platini.
It's already been quite a year for French referee Stephanie Frappart. She made her top-flight debut in April, officiated at the Women's World Cup final last month, and now she's taking charge of the UEFA Super Cup.
Fans with Champions League final tickets were stranded when their tickets were stolen outside the stadium. Organizers UEFA were no help, with a lack of stewards and 'aggressive' policing contributing to chaotic scenes.
Season after season, ticket prices for Champions League matches get higher and higher. As clubs squabble, hardcore traveling supporters across Europe bear the brunt of the costs. UEFA must cap tickets to end this circus.
