    Stepashin said that he initially opposed the “autumn-spring” system

    MOSCOW, December 13, Sergei Fuks. Former Prime Minister RF, member of the board of directors of the Moscow football club Dynamo Sergei Stepashin said that he initially opposed the transition to the “autumn-spring” system, and noted that a number of matches of the Russian Premier League (RPL) should be postponed to the spring.
    A number of matches of the Russian championship were disrupted due to weather conditions in the country. According to the regulations, postponements of the meeting are possible if the temperature is below 15 degrees. In the 17th round, due to weather conditions, the start of the Lokomotiv – Zenit (3:1) match in Moscow was delayed by 30 minutes, and the holding of the CSKA – Rostov (2:0) game was in question. Temperature measurements were also carried out in the 18th round at the games “Lokomotiv” – “Ural” (2:0) and “Spartak” – “Krylya Sovetov” (3:0).
    “”I was a member of the executive committee and opposed the transition to the “autumn-spring” system. I also “jiggled” – we are moving to the “winter-winter” system. But Zhenya Giner tried to explain the advantages, and (Sergei) Fursenko said , that life will force us to build stadiums with a roof. You have to understand that we are a northern country, and for me playing in frost and snow is absurd. Football is for fans, and you can’t sit in the stands in 15-degree frost, then you have to give it a good shake. Row matches just need to be postponed to the spring, and I would generally postpone several rounds to the spring – March, April. Moreover, we do not play in European cups. Maybe (Alexander) Dyukov will finally hear me,” Stepashin told reporters.
    The Russian Championship in all professional divisions switched to holding the tournament on the “autumn-spring” system in 2012. In May, at the RFU conference, it was decided to return the Russian Second League tournament to the spring-autumn system.
