Aleksander Ceferin has been nominated to run for a second term as UEFA president by several European football federations.
The Slovenian football federation, where Seferin served as president prior to the UEFA role, confirmed that seven other countries alongside themselves had recommended the 50-year-old for re-election.
"The current president of UEFA and former president of the NZS, Aleksander Ceferin has been nominated by the NZS together with seven other European football federations for the second term in the position of President of UEFA," the NZS said in a statement.
"Eight football federations sent an official proposal to UEFA on Tuesday morning, according to the statute, that [UEFA] will be headed by Ceferin during the next term.
"Two years ago, when he first ran for President of UEFA, he was initially proposed by the football federations of Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Italy, and Iceland and the Faroe Islands this year. The official candidacy was then filed by Slovenia. The current mandate for Aleksander Ceferin expires in February 2019."
The deadline for nominations is November 7, with elections to be held in Rome on February 7 next year.
