Aleksander Ceferin: UEFA to present trophies on pitch, not in stands

Aleksander Ceferin has said trophy presentations will be carried out on the pitch.

FIFA president Aleksander Ceferin has said trophy presentations will be carried out on the pitch after ending predecessor Michel Platini's tradition of presenting them in the VIP section of stadiums.

In a statement, UEFA said Ceferin had decided that "trophy presentations on the pitch will now be standard practice across all UEFA club and national team competitions."

The governing body's president said it was more fitting that "officials come down from the stands to the players -- to their arena -- and pay tribute to them."

He added: "The pitch is the players' stage and it is only fitting that their achievements are celebrated there.

"Players will also be able to celebrate with their teammates on the pitch in full view of the fans without the interruption of having to climb up to the stands.

"Furthermore, all supporters will get a perfect view of the trophy lift wherever they are seated in the stadium."

On-pitch presentations will be brought in from next week, when Ceferin hands the Europa League trophy to either Ajax or Manchester United in Stockholm.
