The discussions and exchange of ideas at UEFA's headquarters in Nyon focused on the level of the European cup competitions, the quality of the referees and the changing role of coaches today. "A special issue was a recap of the EURO 2012. In addition, UEFA referee head Pierluigi Collina was there for the first time. He talked about refereeing in general and specifically about the new angles referees have with the additional officials, for example at the European Championship," said Schaaf about the meeting.
