Athletistic/Football. Honorary President of the RFU Vyacheslav Koloskov spoke about the proposal of the organization’s general secretary Maxim Mitrofanov to help clubs build stadium roofs.

“In the RFU, the budget is focused on other objectives. That is why, during the recent executive committee, I proposed an option that would reduce costs to a minimum. This is to change the format of the Championship Russia.

Stadium roofs are a half-measure that will not solve all the problems. Of course, this will spare players and spectators from bad weather conditions. But you have to prepare and train for the match. It is the training that underpins the skill of the players. Roofs alone will not raise the skill level,” Koloskov told RT.
