MOSCOW, July 25 /TASS/. The Crimean Football Union will invite representatives of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) to the ceremony of opening of a new football season, the Crimean Football Union president, Yuri Vetokha, told TASS.
UEFA set up the Crimean Football Union in July last year. The first Crimean football championship took place from August 22, 2015 to June 4, 2016.
"We are going to write an invitation to UEFA to attend the ceremony of opening of a new season to be held on August 20. We will hold a drawing procedure and make a calendar of matches on August 8. The format will remain the same: eight teams in four rounds. Krymteplitsa (the Simferopol region) will replace Berkut from Armyansk," Vetokha went on to say.
The Crimean Football Union will discuss the regulations next season. "Perhaps, we are going to make an amendment according to which the first eleven will include a player aged 16-18. We are planning to ban transfers of players outside the transfer windows. The players still do not have the FIFA transfer certificates. That is why it was possible last season," Vetokha said.
The International Transfer Certificate (ITC) is the main document regulating the transfers of players from one team to another. The national association, in which a player is registered, sends a certificate designed in compliance with FIFA requirements to the national association of a football club for which the player is going to play in future.
