In December 2021, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on the introduction of a fan ID (Fan ID).
This decision caused a stir in fan circles. Many football fans boycotted RPL matches, but they did not stop going to the Russian Cup, since innovation does not apply to this tournament.
Today, July 25, the Ministry of the Interior took the initiative to introduce Fan ID for the country’s Cup. Such information is available on the telegram channel “Mutko contra”.
“The option where Fan ID will operate in RPL Way games is being considered,” the source said.
Let’s add that last season a fan card was not required to attend the matches of the Russian Cup, with the exception of the final in Luzhniki.
