Premier League clubs took part in an online press-conference
Professional Football League of Kazakhstan led the online press-conference with Premier League clubs management.
For the first time PFLK together with the clubs discussed calendar planning issues for next season in an online format and shared thoughts and suggestions for improvements.
During the press-conference several options for next season's calendar have been suggested. At the end of discussions, based on all thoughts and suggestions from the clubs, calendar will be formed and published after the confirmation.
For Astana, Kairat, Irtysh and Ordabasy, who will be playing in the European tournaments in 2017, PFLK made reserve dates in the first part of the season with the aim to reduce amount of Premier League fixtures in the summer, when the European tournaments will start.
Suggestion was made to host the Kazakhstan Cup final in one of the regional cities, given there will be an interest from them. In comparison to previous seasons, this year the Cup final will take place before the end of the season to raise the interest for this tournament.
During the press-conference suggestions were made from Head of Department for national teams Ghani Kainazarov to the clubs related to the preparation of the national team for the fixture against Armenia on 26 March.
