What We Want
On April 30, 2018, in Berlin, the clubs FIFH Malmo, HC Rostock, Sporting Clube de Portugal and Old Power agreed to the founding of the European Goalball Clubs Association (EGCA).
EGCA will be the representative of its members with international entities.
The Association of European Goalball Clubs will be an independent body that will directly represent goalball clubs at European level. AGCA replaced the G-4 Group and the SEGL Forum, with EGCA being the "voice of the clubs", positioning itself as an important part of the European panorama of goalball.
EGCA exists to protect and promote the European club's goalball. Its goal is to create a more democratic governance model that truly reflects the key role of clubs. EGCA will work to strengthen each club for the benefit of all and to ensure that the goalball club is recognized by decision makers as the most direct link with supporters and their communities.
THE FOUR PILLARS OF EGCA: Representation, Participation, Cooperation and Service
Representation: Direct representation of clubs to safeguard and promote their interests in European club goalball affairs.
Participation: high level involvement in the decision-making process of the goallball governing bodies.
Cooperation: Commitment to play a constructive role in the European goalball, together with all stakeholders.
Service: Provide knowledge sharing, information and services to member clubs on European club goalball issues.
EGCA will organize annually the European championship called the Super European Goalball League (SEGL).
