SIMFEROPOL, October 2. /TASS/. The visit of the delegation from the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) to Crimea has been put off for one or two weeks, the president the Crimean Football Union said on Friday.
"The report came yesterday evening. We had a call from the UEFA, they apologized and asked to postpone the visit for a later date - a week or two later," Yuri Vetokha said, adding that no more explanation had been provided.
Earlier reports said the UEFA delegation, led by Frantisek Laurinets, would attend the opening of the Crimean Football Union’s headquarters in the capital Simferopol due on October 3. The event has been also postponed, but the UEFA delegation is unlikely to attend it.
"We postpone the opening. It will be held next week, we will say more exactly on Monday or Tuesday. But we will not wait for the UEFA," Vetokha added.
The press attache of the Crimean Football Union, Andrei Cherny, told TASS earlier on Friday: "For our part, everything is ready for the visit,"
Laurinets was appointed as UEFA’s special envoy to Crimea on September 17 at the session of the organization’s executive committee. In March, he led the UEFA delegation during the first visit to the Black Sea peninsula.
