APA reports that the document was signed by Azerbaijan’s Deputy Defense Minister, Colonel General Chingiz Mammadov and by CISM president, Colonel Hamad Kalkaba Malboum.


Addressing the event, Chingiz Mammadov noted that the trophy will be held in Baku between June 30 and July 16. Azerbaijan is carrying out relevant activities for high-level organization of this trophy. According to him, several events and European Commission of CISM have been held in Azerbaijan up to now. Azerbaijan has been a member of this council since 1995 and won 175 medals in CISM trophies by now: “The decision on holding the first football trophy of the council in Azerbaijan is important. The Organizing Committee consisting of representatives of the Defense Ministry, Ministry of Youth and Sports, as well as AFFA has already been established and is functioning now.”


Mammadov also added that 16 CISM member states and about 500 sportsmen and 100 delegations are expected to participate in the trophy. The matches will be held in “Shafa”, “Dalga”, “Bayil” and “Zira” stadiums.


Thanking the Azerbaijani Government and Armed Forces, Malboum said that the trophy was planned two years ago: “Our trophies bring together thousands of servicemen and aim to establish friendship. We are soldiers, who protect the peace. The soldiers can show themselves through sports. Azerbaijan’s assistance in organizing this trophy shows that it is a peace-loving country. Together with our thousands of sportsmen we will attend competitions here in the future.”


The draw of the Football Trophy will be held on April 29, the opening ceremony on July 2 and closing on July 14
