Today the League Council adopted a difficult, but important and only right decision. Given the globally evolving situation with the spread of COVID-19, the championship should have stopped. The priority is the health of players, fans, team members, referees, maintenance staff - all those involved in the conduct of matches, including their families. Yes, there will remain a feeling of understatement, because professional sport is, first of all, the results. But today, for the first time, we are all faced with force majeure circumstances. Therefore, we associate all our ambitions, dreams and desires with the next season. Now the main thing is that in the world, in all countries, the situation stabilizes. And it depends on each of us personally.
