FC Irtysh may withdraw from the championship of Kazakhstan

FC Irtysh Kazakhstan’s five-time champion may cease to exist owing to poor financial conditions. Football players, coaches and club staff have not received salaries since February 2020 and now there is a high probability FC Irtysh won’t take part in the remainder of the season. Their biggest sponsor ERG (world’s largest high-carbon ferrochrome producer and among Eurasia’s largest producers of aluminum and iron ore products) refused to finance the team leaving them at the verge of liquidation. On top of that, it was found that after financial audit they did not pay more than 2M EUR in taxes which is another big problem.
