"Today, three matches of U-19 UPL teams took place successfully. This means that a special full-scale war football season has begun! Despite numerous obstacles and despair of skeptics, football in Ukraine is being revived!

And immediately there is the first experience of stopping a match after receiving an air alarm signal. It happened at the end of the match between "Chornomorets" and "Veres", which took place at the stadium of the Olympic Professional College named after I. Poddubny. In accordance with the security protocol, all participants and organizers of the match took shelter. And after the military informed about the sounding of the alarm about 20 minutes later, the teams ended the match.
