Armenia’s football federation announced Wednesday the decision to
delay the start of the country’s football league because of the
adverse weather and poor pitch conditions at the country’s venues.
This year’s prolonged and extremely cold winter in the country gave
the technical services of the stadiums no chance to prepare the pitches
for the matches of the domestic league’s opening day on Saturday.
The federation said the decision about the new date of the league’s
start would be taken at the executive committee special meeting in
the near future.
