Presidential Elections Can Leave Fans Without Football

Russia's Interior Ministry has ordered the Russian Football Premier League to cancel all Moscow matches that would coincide with March 4, the day of presidential election.

      The request is explained by the fact that police have to guard over 94.000 polling stations across Russia – beginning on March 3 until the vote count is completed on March 5. So Russian football fans won't see any matches of March 3 and 5 as well. It is still unclear if the football matches, which is to be held not in the capital, should be canceled too. 

      There were four clashes to take place in Moscow on Match day 33, with Lokomotiv playing Kuban, Spartak hosting Rubin Kazan, Dynamo taking on Anzhi and CSKA facing Zenit Saint Petersburg in the clash of the table toppers.

      The changes in the matches' days and places are now being discussed. the decision will be made at Russian Football Premier League's meeting next week. Still, Aleksandr Meytin, the Premier League’s chief security officer, said there were two games which couldn't be moved anywhere, as the teams were involved in European competitions.

      In his turn, the head police boss suggested that if the games couldn't be rescheduled, then “they should be played without spectators.”
