(QHA) -

UEFA executives and administrators have postponed their visit to Crimea from February 16-20 to February 18-19, says Alexander Krasilnikov, the president of FC SKChF Sevastopol, TASS reports.

The officials are due to visit the peninsula to check football infrastructure and development of the Crimean championship.

To recall, UEFA has banned clubs in Crimea from playing in competitions in Russia.

UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino announced Crimea would be designated a "special zone for football purposes".

Crimea's unification with Russia is not recognised by the international community and the statutes of football's European governing body UEFA and world governing body FIFA prohibit clubs switching federations without consent.
