UEFA invests in the Crimean football


Crimean Soccer Club

UEFA officials have made a decision to invest one million euros for infrastructural projects and football development in the Crimea, as per TASS.

UEFA executive members held a meeting the day before in Nyon where Crimean football councilors were present. Our party has touched upon the questions of football development at the Peninsula and offered possible ways of its fulfillment. 

After accession of Crimea to Russia, football clubs playing at the Ukraine championship were suspended, as the Union of European Football Associations did not allow them to participate in the Russian football competitions, conducted by the Russian Football Union.

However, now UEFA officials provided financing and expressed their readiness to collaborate with Russian Football Union, which has a special status with UEFA. Directors of the Crimean football clubs and football players hope that they would take part in the Russian Football Cup in future.
