Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Andrea Agnelli are set to join the UEFA executive committee representing Europe's top clubs.

The 220-member European Club Association says it nominated Rummenigge, the Bayern Munich chairman, and Agnelli, the president of Juventus, to fill the two seats offered by UEFA.

The ECA says its two officials will attend their first UEFA executive meeting on Sept. 17 in Malta.
