The PDP extend their congratulations on this historic occasion to everyone at the Gibraltar Football Association for their hard work over the years and finally achieving this goal today.
The Government welcomes the admission of the Gibraltar Football Association (GFA) into UEFA.
This will provide a huge boost to the development of football locally.
Gibraltar has one of the oldest football associations in the world and it is very fitting that they will finally be able to take their place alongside the rest of the European family of footballing nations.
"I am very happy and satisfied that Gibraltarians now have the ability to play football at official and international UEFA level. This will no doubt improve the level of facilities and encourage our youngsters to aim for the sky. This is a very happy day for Gibraltarian football and Gibraltar as a whole.
Statement from the Governor:
"I welcome the fantastic news that the Gibraltar FA has finally been admitted to UEFA. It has been a monumental effort by Team 54 and their supporters. For 120 years football has been an important part of life in Gibraltar for young and old alike and this is a big step in promoting further sporting development.
The Gibraltar football team has just been granted full membership of UEFA. The team becomes the 54th nation to be recognised by European football’s governing body.
