EXCLUSIVE: Kazakhstan's capital city considers hosting Astana vs APOEL match

ASTANA. KAZINFORM The issue of hosting "Astana" FC vs APOEL (Cyprus) match in Astana is being discussed now, Astana Mayor Adilbek Dzhaksybekov said.

"Currently we are discussing the possibility of holding the match on Astana Arena stadium. It's a big event and we have much to do.

To tell the truth, we didn't expect that "Astana" Football Club would win", the Mayor said and added he was happy to know about the Kazakh team's victory. "This is the success of Kazakhstan football, the success of Astana team", he added.
