UEFA pioneer Bangerter passed away at the age of 98
Former UEFA official Hans Bangerter passed away, he was 98 years old. From 1960 to 1988 he was the Secretary General of the European Football Association. When the so-called off-ground goals rule was introduced for the 1969/70 season, it was Bangerter’s idea and initiative. The Honorary Member of UEFA later witnessed the exponential growth of the Continental Federation during its tenure. In 1960, UEFA was a two-man operation. Later, thanks to Bangerter, the headquarters was moved from Paris to his native Bern – and from there to Nyon in 1995.
