CSKA fans to boycott Russian Cup final

CSKA Moscow fans have threatened to boycott their Russian Cup final meeting with Anzhi Makhachkala over the decision to hold it in Chechnya.

The Russian Football Association (RFU) have chosen to stage the showpiece fixture in Grozny, the capital of the volatile state, which has historically been plagued by terrorism.
But a CSKA fanclub have expressed their displeasure over the decision, and elected not to attend the June 1 final.
“We’re calling on all our supporters to refrain of going to Grozny. Let others follow (RFU) orders and do what they are told, not us,” an official statement read.
“Idiots in the RFU had made a decision to hold the cup final in a city where local referees and security officials beat up players from visiting teams and the region’s head makes public insults and then boasts about it on social media.
“By boycotting the final we want to express our outrage by the stupid decision of the RFU, totally ignoring the fans’ opinion.

“We’re still asking all our followers to boycott all the away games played in the Caucasus.”

A Chechen referee was banned for life last month after running onto the pitch in order to attack Amkar Perm defender Ilya Krichmar during a game in Grozny.
