DCL Executive Committee had a meeting the past 27th October in Aalen (Germany) to discuss several issues in relation to European Deaf Football/Futsal and work towards the next DCL events that will be in 2019. Six members of the DCL Executive Committee stayed in Aalen, discussing various matters, e.g. competitions, structure, clubs, cooperation with EDSO, rules, financial accounts, budget, media, etc.
The main feature of the meeting was to approve the structure with new members and the proposals previously studied by the teams in the Annual General Meeting that was held last February in Alcala de Henares (Madrid), which were to be included in the rules and regulations for football and futsal. Those documents will be exposed soon in the DCL website and will be distributed to the EDSO Federation members for their information. Other issues that were discussed especially the DCL events:
- DCL Futsal (02-06th January 2019) in Stuttgart (Germany).
- DCL Football (14-20th April 2019) in London (England).
DCL also discussed the venue to DCL U-21 Futsal 2019 and Football 2020 that will be announced in the next months.
