What is it – to root for the team, which is long gone

“My life changed dramatically on May 6, 2006, on the day of Saint George, which is highly revered in Ossetia. On this day, Stavropol Dynamo and Alania (1: 3) played in the second league.

After 2014, the second Maidan, the start of the war and the annexation of a part of the Ukrainian territory, the once growing, albeit with oligarchic money, Ukrainian football entered a steep dive.
