Sascha Duerkop, General Secretary of CONIFA added that «what we criticise about the World Cup in... Еще Russia or Qatar is not that it's in Russia or Qatar, not at all. We criticise the whole process of how it's selected, it's all behind closed doors so that's what we criticise mostly.» Teams and coaches also expressed their admiration of the alternative tournament. «It means a lot for us. We came here to confirm our title and of course we'll make the maximum effort to win this championship,» said Head coach of the Abkhazia national football team Beslan Ajinjal. The Confederation of Independent Football Associations (CONIFA) aims to unite «nations, de-facto nations, regions, minority peoples and sports isolated territories.» Founded in 2013, CONIFA unites 47 members and claims to contribute to the «enhancement of international understanding.»
