EPFL´s main goal is to enhance and protect competitive balance in league competitions.

The Association of European Professional Football Leagues – EPFL represents more than 900 clubs in 32 professional football leagues and associations of clubs in 25 countries, across Europe.

As the voice of competition organisers at domestic level and professional football club employers at European level we seek to enhance and protect the competitive balance of professional football competitions within European Football. We believe the lack of this is the greatest threat to the future of our game.

The EPFL believes that it is in the interest of all domestic leagues, all national associations and the vast majority of European clubs to defend and strengthen the competitive balance of football – for the good of the game, the players, the fans and the clubs.
