The landmark decision is now being celebrated across Gibraltar and the Chief Minister Fabian Picardo will shortly be hosting a press conference on this historic occasion.

The decision on the GFA's application was brought forward by a few hours towards the end of UEFA's annual congress which took place in the Grosvenor Hotel in London.
