Deriyageldy Orazov elected chairman of Football Federation of Turkmenistan

The Football Federation of Turkmenistan held a conference in Ashgabat. Delegates from all regions of Turkmenistan and Ashgabat participated in the conference. It was also attended by the Asian Football Confederation Secretary General Dato Poll Moni Samuel as well as AFC's legal department head Sharmein Maria Pereira.

One of the issues on the conference agenda was election of a new head of the federation. The mayor of Ashgabat, Deriyageldy Orazov, was nominated to the post of chairman of the Football Federation of Turkmenistan. There were no other nominations. Consequently, according to FIFA and AFC rules, there was no need to have voting, and D.Orazov was elected chairman of the FFT.

The conference also elected a new audit commission of the FFT and admitted FC Altyn Asyr to the FFT. FC Altyn Asyr was recently set up and registered with the ministry of justice of Turkmenistan.
