After the first match of the second qualifying round of UEFA Champions League between Zestaponi and Dacia (3:0) bulgarian Delegate of this match Andrey Medintsev provided UEFA bad information. According to the photo, security-officer who had to secure the match did not prohibit attendance to those spectators who did not have ticket.

Such argument was enough for UEFA to prohibit Zestaponi holding match at Davit Abashidze stadium in this season. The stadium itself does not have any problems because Gagra hosts Anarthosis next Thursday.

Now Zestaponi does everything to overcome obstacle of Dacia and in case of success host next match in Zestaponi.

It is natural that everything happens according to law and government as well as authority of Georgian Football Federation. There is a big probability if government takes responsibility and guarantee of secure and GFF supports it, UEFA will change its verdict.

As far as you know while competing at European tournament, the club is oriented on result and it is decisive where it holds match.

Zestaponi does it best to host rival in Zestaponi after overcoming Moldovan obstacle. Georgian team is oriented on the best result, which includes protection of countrys interest at international arena. Thats why to play in front of your fans is very important. We understand that in case of going through play-off we have to play interior match at Erovnuli stadium, because Davit Abashidze stadium does not satisfy requests of UEFA, but for overcoming one more qualifying round is necessary to play in Zestaponi- states Sergo Putkaradze press-speaker of Zestaponi.

So, consultations continue. Government, football federation and the club are determined UEFA to give right of holding match at Davit Abashidze. Everyone does his/her best for it.
