On 20 October 2014, the EOC EU Office welcomed Leigh Thompson at the office in Brussels for an introductory meeting. Leigh Thompson is the new Policy Adviser of the Sport and Recreation Alliance of the United Kingdom. He took office during summer. He will be dealing with a number of issues including EU-affairs. A number of topics that have been discussed were the fight against match-fixing and taxation.
Mr. Thompson will also be representing the Sport and Recreation Alliance in the future partner meetings of the EOC EU Office. He will replace David Foster. We would like to thank David for the great collaboration and wish him all the best for the future.
