The number of children and youth tournament increased, where take part sports schools as well rural teams. Currently, the Crimean Football Union is focused on, that at all professional teams of the peninsula should play own pupils. The Children and Youth’s Football League championship for young football players – is great game practice, an opportunity to play in original football, built not as much on technical skill and tactical training, as on the players` full dedication. I wish to all the participants of the competitions success in the upcoming sports race".
