Quote:Ural Great out of the Russian Superleague

Ural Great did not manage to pay the 1,8 million rubles required to take part in next year's edition of the Russian Superleague and will most likely be out for next season. The club is in serious financial trouble, unable to pay debts and salaries and not participating in next year's Superleague could not be the worst case scenario.

Quote:Triumph Lyubertsy (formerly known as Dynamo Moscow Region) will compete in next season's Russian Superleague A despite financial difficulties as they have a new president since today, Roman Agapov who is also the vice-chairman of the Moscow Region.

As the club's coach said, nothing of those could not happen without the generous support of Boris Gromoviy, the Governor of the Moscow Region who is also a sports fan.

Stanislav Eremin also confirmed that the club will have to reduce its budget, but assured the club's fans that the team will put up a good squad nevertheless and said that the club will play in European competitions too as planned.
