The Cyprus football association (Kop) has submitted proposals for support of football clubs during the coronavirus pandemic to the government.

President of the association Giorgos Koumas, together with first vice president Harris Loizides and second vice president Nicos Nicolaou held a teleconference with Finance Minister Constantinos Petrides and government officials on Thursday to discuss the issue.

Petrides said he would consider the proposals and come back to the association as soon as possible.
