FC Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu will be in Paris, France on Tuesday to take part in the General Assembly of the ECA (European Club Association).

The meeting, which brings together the ECA members, is expected to deal with various issues including the relationship the clubs have with FIFA and UEFA, as well as with some of the association's other internal administrative matters. Also, during the meeting, UNESCO will present a series of proposals to the clubs to combat racism in football.

The Paris gathering is the second of two ECA General Assemblies held every season. The group met in September in Geneva. In between, the ECA Executive Committee meetings are held, which president Bartomeu has been a part of since May 2014.
