An issue with the “Tofik Bahramov” stadium arises about ten days before the match between AEL and Karabakh for the replay match, in the third qualifying round of the Conference League.
The director of the stadium, Samil Guliyev, spoke on the website azerisport.com, of Azerbaijan, about the issue that arises with the stadium.
Details of what the Azeri website reports:
“The issue with the grass is such that you can not solve it in a few days. The work is in progress, they saw the field and experts from abroad. The problem is related to the weather in the country and the requirements from UEFA, which insists on using sand. In our conditions, the sand does not allow the grass to be kept in a stable condition.
UEFA frequently analyzes the grass and if we add land there, then the game can be canceled. Water every hour. This is done by a computer system. Irrigation takes 60-70 tons of water every day. Let's see in a week what the playing field will be like. Fortunately, Karabakh is playing its first away game. “But the grass has already started to turn green.”
