Russia may establish united football fans’ association
An association uniting all fans’ movements of Russian football clubs must be set up in the country to help the sport of football co-exist with spectators, the Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said.
"Undoubtedly, we must work with football fans movements and we need to form an association," Mutko said in an interview with Rossiya-24 television channel.
"We have already held meetings with the leaders of the fans movements of the country’s top football clubs and asked them what kind of a system they wanted to see. Let it be the association, although without the status of a legal entity at the moment," TASS cited him as saying.
"We want all fans organizations of professional football clubs to be united in some sort of an association, which would be expressing their interests," the Russian sports chief said.
