Announcement of President DIFA Iakov Frenkel
As the COVID-19 virus situation continues to evolve, the Deaf International Football Association (DIFA) announced that the World Deaf Veteran Futsal Cup (+40) could not be held from May 1-6. It’s more likely to be postponed until October depending on further developments in the world. Although no one can predict the situation that awaits us on the 1st initial date of the start of the World Cup futsal tournament among veterans (+ 40), the current quarantine measures do not allow us to prepare for the tournament in the original time frame.
It also notes that the DIFA is ready to do everything in its power to put the futsal cup among the veterans back on the path of development.
“We made a difficult but bold decision in this UNPRECEDENTED situation, which has become very complicated over the past week. We act with all responsibility and will work together to ensure universal health and safety. ”
