At the next meeting of the executive committee of the Russian Football Union (RFU), which will be held on May 24, the issue of the format of the competition for the next season will be considered. This was announced to journalists by the president of the RFU, Alexander Dyukov.
“We plan to consider the issue of the format of the competition next season. Unfortunately, next season the Russian clubs and the national team are suspended from participating in international competitions. We have additional windows, so we will consider various scenarios that will allow our teams to play more games,” TASS quotes Dyukov.
According to him, the RFU created a working group, which included representatives of the clubs and the league, and prepared various scenarios for the next season’s competition. “One of them is the holding of the Russian Premier League Cup, but at the moment it is premature to draw conclusions and talk about which option is preferable. Of course, the moratorium on the exit of the RPL is one of them, ”Dyukov said.
The President clarified that the task of the working group is to propose a format for holding national competitions, which “allows maintaining and, preferably, increasing the sporting level of the tournaments and the interest of the spectators.”
