Russia has decided on the completion of the season in the Russian championship. The Secretary-General of the RFU Alexander Alaev told about two possible scenarios:
“The first scenario is optimistic. Given the stance of UEFA and evaluating the existing ban by the Russian authorities, we plan to resume the superiority of RPL and finish the remaining 8 rounds, starting with June 21.
In any case, it is inexpedient to resume the championship FNL and PFL. The main thing now is to preserve the integrity belonging to the next season. To get players that did not play six months, to carry out 11 games during the month – do not see the point. In the championship of Germany played 27 rounds – more than two-thirds, and we believe that it can be considered completed. The question remains for the Russian Cup, it is played by clubs of Germany, which most likely will not continue the season. Many nuances will make a decision on this tournament later. The date in the calendar.
The second scenario is pessimistic. If the situation does not allow you to resume the championship and the state authorities will take appropriate decisions, you recognize the superiority held. Fixed all places without the departure of the last two teams in the national football League. Thus, the next season in the RPL will take place from 18 teams. If the “Rotor” and “Khimki” will be the licensing, they will join the top League.
“Zenit” will be declared the champion in the competition teams according to the places. Due to the tight calendar we have to abandon the one season of the Russian Cup. The permit in League of Europe the winner of the Cup of Russia will pass the team that is fourth in the RPL”.
