There are 16 clubs in the RPL, Arsenal and Rubin are out

A fateful meeting of the executive committee of the RFU took place on Tuesday at the House of Football. Interestingly, it didn’t take long for the participants. The main football organization in Russia published the official news with the results at 12:40 Moscow time.

The main thing is the preservation of the current format of the championship next season. As always, 16 clubs will participate. It is not yet known who voted and how, but a day earlier nine RPL clubs sent a joint letter to the RFU in support of the current format. It was signed by Zenit, Sochi, Dynamo, Krasnodar, CSKA, Lokomotiv, Krylya Sovetov, Spartak and Nizhny Novgorod.

Since there will be no moratorium, this means that Arsenal and Rubin will go to the FNL (they will be replaced by Torpedo and Fakel), while Khimki and Ufa will play in the play-offs. The Moscow region team will fight with SKA Khabarovsk, and the Bashkir team will fight with Orenburg.

The fate of the League Cup will be determined on July 15

Since there will be no increase in matches in the Premier League, it means that we must find another way to involve the teams in the breaks that have opened as a result of the ban on all Russian football, from clubs in European competitions to domestic . team in the League of Nations and qualification for Euro 2024.

At the moment, a recreation of the League Cup is most likely. Such a tournament was held only once, in 2003, and Zenit became its winner. It is true that in the new version it will have a completely different format, unusual for football, but adopted in eSports, when the relegated team falls into the pool of losers and can continue fighting for the trophy from there.

It is in a nutshell. The details are not so important now, because the final decision on the tournament has not yet been made, because there is no clarity with the commercial component. For example, it has no sponsors. Likewise, no final decision has been made on the financial model of the Cup (revenue distribution among participants, etc.). These issues must be resolved by July 15.

Gazizov: “I will continue to double my line”

In general, the vast majority of journalists, bloggers and people in the world of football, from coaches to managers, supported that option, so we should be happy that the RFU, led by President Alexander Dyukov, pushed this balance and sobriety. decision, which allows you to return to the current configuration at any time when Russia returns to the international arena.

The “RPL expanders” lobby was more extensive until recently, but by the time of the executive committee it had been reduced to a bare minimum of outsiders in the Premier League. So, the sadness at the end of the meeting was expressed by the general director of “Ufa” Shamil Gazizov.

“My position has been known to everyone for a long time, this is not the first year or the first season that I have advocated for the expansion of the RPL. Today the RFU had a unique opportunity to increase the number of teams. What can I say? IT’S OKAY. At the very least, I will continue working in this direction, sticking to my line”, cites the Championship football coach.

Anokhin prepares alliance between RPL and Fonbet

On this, the news of the executive committee is practically exhausted. We only add that Sergei Anokhin and Rochus Shokh gave up on him. Both, in connection with the transition to a new job. Shokh headed the Kazakhstan PFL, and Anokhin took over as General Director of the Fonbet betting company.

“I said goodbye to the executive committee, they fired me with dignity. Somewhere sad, but in front of a new life. I will definitely help Russian football in terms of association. Fonbet is now working with the RFU, we are considering issues related to the Premier League. You have to understand that this is a market issue, because I am now the CEO of a large trade organization,” he said.

Also, Fonbet can become a new sponsor of RPL. This position became vacant after Liga Stavok, which won the auction, rejected the contract. According to Anokhin, his company will need a couple of weeks to analyze its own capabilities and benefits, after which he can enter into negotiations.

“I think there is a conflict of interest, and the issue of clubs taking the name of the bookmakers is being considered. There is nothing wrong in it. Another thing is that this should affect the amount of the contract and that is a new condition that must be worked on, consulted”, he said.


This is a wonderful day for all Russian football, with which we congratulate everyone. It is true that it is a bit sad that we have to rejoice not because of the progress, but because of the fact that we managed to stop the madness. Well, for now it’s not bad.
