Golden match rule introduced in Belarus Premier League

On January 30, the Executive Committee of the Belarus Football Federation took place, with a number of decisions made.

The functionaries approved the regulations of the 28th Belarusian championship, in which there is one curious moment. In case top teams finish equal on points in the standings, the champion's title will be decided in the so-called golden match.

In 2017, BATE and Dinamo Minsk scored equal number of points but BATE won the championship thanks to better head-to-head results. Some believe BATE won controversially since they must have been deprived of three points earlier in the championship for violating regulations.

Also, the executive committee decided on the venue for the final match of Belarus Cup. The decisive battle for this trophy will take place in Mogilev at the stadium Spartak.
