Baku. 23 January. REPORT.AZ/ "We have received good offers in connection with the CIS Cup from our Azerbaijani colleagues."
Report informs, President of the Russian Football Union (RFU) Vitaly Mutko said in an interview with Sport weekend talking about the future of the CIS Cup.
He spoke with UEFA President Alexander Ceferin on this matter: "If CIS Cup will be held between the clubs, we need to think about its organization. For example to host it in Sochi. We have good offers from our Azerbaijani colleagues. We can make remuneration. However, the organization of the tournament between junior teams is not a good option.
Notably, Commonwealth of Independent States Cup held since 1993 within former Soviet Union and in 2011 it has been suspended. At that time, "Neftchi", "Khazar Lankaran" and "Inter" teams won a victory. After that, the tournament was held between youth age groups.
In July 2016, Vitaly Mutko said such competitions will not be held anymore.
