Kharkov may be deprived of international football

At the request of the European aviation safety Agency plans to close the airports in Kharkov, Dnepr and Zaporozhye


Club “Shakhtar” and the national team of Ukraine on football can lose Kharkiv Metalist stadium as the home arena. This can happen if you close the Kharkiv international airport. It is reported

Airports Kharkov, Dnepr and Zaporozhye can close at the request of the European aviation safety Agency (EASA). EASA has already sent the corresponding project in the State aviation service of Ukraine. For reasons of security it imposes restrictions on aircraft flights in the Dnepropetrovsk region, which includes the airports of Kharkov, Dnepr and Zaporozhye.

The city authorities of Kharkiv appealed to the Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groisman with a request not to adopt the draft.

If in Kharkov will not be the existing airport, UEFA may not allow the “Metalist” stadium to hold the European Cup matches. Then Shakhtar will have to find a new home arena. You can also prevent a play in Kharkiv and the Ukraine national team.
