Erick Thohir: “FFP will strengthen European football”

NYON – FC Internazionale and UEFA’s Club Financial Control Board held a meeting in Nyon today about the club’s Development Plan for the coming years. Inter’s senior executives went through a comprehensive presentation of the club’s future vision and highlighted the steps that have already been achieved. Inter president Erick Thohir attended the meeting to illustrate his commitment to the club and share his strategy to return Inter to Champions League competition. “FFP contains a positive message and one which we believe in. It will strengthen European football. We were delighted to share our project with UEFA,” stated president Thohir. “The club is evolving its business model, governance and corporate structure to reach self-sustainability in the near future, in line with the requirements of FFP. Football has changed and UEFA now requires clubs to be self-sustainable.” The president continued: “A major step down this path has been the appointment of a team of experienced senior executives with a proven and successful track record. These senior officials also benefit from the strong international vision and competence of the club’s shareholders.” “The core concept of our strategy,” explained chief executive officer Michael Bolingbroke, “is to expand the business by increasing profits through carefully-targeted investment, and the generation of new and enhanced revenue streams alongside improved brand awareness throughout the world. I’m convinced that Inter have a robust plan that will once again lead us to become a top 10 club, both on and off the pitch.” Inter will continue to collaborate openly with UEFA’s CFCB to ensure full understanding and endorsement of the measures included in the Plan.
