In Astrakhan, on Saturday, August 1, the central stadium will host the match of the first round of the Russian Olympic Football Championship among the teams of the FNL clubs of the 2020-2021 season. Volgar and Krasnodar-2 will meet at the Central Stadium.
Football fans were indignant at why the match would be held without spectators. Astrakhan fans even wrote an open appeal to Governor Igor Babushkin. As a result, the match will take place without spectators in the stands.
However, fans have the opportunity to watch the match live on Yandex.Efir.
The press service of the governor of the Astrakhan region “MK in Astrakhan” reported that matches with spectators will become possible when the epidemiological situation stabilizes.
