WHAT IS THE NEXT TOURNAMENT PLANS AZERBAIJAN IN 2017?

Among the youth national teams of the former Soviet Union, a football tournament has been held since 1993. Previously it was planned that the tournament would be held in different CIS countries, but for different reasons this couldn’t be put in practice.

Azerbaijan proposes to resume the growth and development of this useful sports tournament and, in accordance with it, suggests holding the 2017 Commonwealth Cup in Baku. It should be recalled that in July 2016 the Russian Football Union President Vladimir Mutko announced the closure of the competition.

Vladimir Mutko and the president of the Association of Football Federations of Azerbaijan (AFFA) Rovnag Abdullayev discussed holding the tournament on the principle of alternating countries. That is, the country, the national team that will become the champion of the current Commonwealth Cup, will host the tournament next year.

This proposal was expressed by AFFA with an additional proposal to invite other neighboring countries to participate in the tournament. After all, more countries will participate, the more the popularity of the Commonwealth Cup will grow, and Azerbaijan is ready to provide all possible assistance in this.
