Spain Will 'Exhaust All Means' To Prevent Gibraltar From Gaining Full UEFA Membership
Published October 3, 2012
OBSTACLES TO OVERCOME: The AFP reported that Gibraltar Football Association General Secretary Richard Manning said there were still "quite a few obstacles" to full membership. Manning said that entry to UEFA would be "important to the territory," allowing youth teams in particular to compete against other European teams. The Gibraltar league is made up of six teams in the premier division, "10 in reserves, 12 in the second division, three women's teams, and 47 junior teams from under-sevens to under-16s with about 600 young players" (AFP, 10/2).
