What our students and experts say

Hugo Viseu
"UEFA’s EURO Observation Programme is a great opportunity to get an overall understanding of what UEFA’s events look like from an operational standpoint. It also provides the opportunity to analyse UEFA’s operations and experiences to be able to improve operations at your own events, or to establish best practices at sporting events."
