Francesco Baranca to check the honesty of Ukrainian referees

Referees should not influence the course of football matches and should remain impartial and honest intermediaries in any situation. The anti-corruption prosecutor of the Football Federation of Ukraine Nazar Kholodnitskiy addressed the national referees with such words in the Football House.

Kholodnitskiy communicated the message of Francesco Baranca, the newly appointed chairman of the FFU Committee on Ethics and Fair Play. Now the Committee will monitor all football matches – Premier League events as well as ordinary friendly fixtures. Experts will pay special attention to the work of referees: whether they are fair or give preference to specific team members, how often they make mistakes, etc. Baranca wants to leave the times when referees influenced the course of competitions far behind.


We would like to remind that PariMatch stopped financing the Premier League last month. After two years of partnership, the parties decided not to prolong the contract. Instead, PariMatch signed an agreement with the current champion of Ukraine – FC Shakhtar.
