A meeting of the Clubs Committee was held – a video conference
AFFA Executive Vice President Elkhan Mammadov made a speech at the meeting, which was attended by officials of AFFA, PFL and Premier League clubs, and spoke about the rules of the meeting and the issues to be discussed. E. Mammadov noted that disinfection of stadiums and other sports facilities in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, determination of the number of substitutions in the games if the championship is restored, clarification of questions about the players' contract periods and the footballers performing on a lease basis, the schedule of cup games and whether games will be held or not on the children's leagues are the main topics of discussion. Then the head of the technical sports department of the Professional Football League Elgiz Abbasov informed about the possible date options for the resumption of the national championship if the clubs start training. Given the fact that the current season is not over yet and there is no final tournament schedule, the club's representatives spoke in alphabetical order of the names of the clubs. Respectively, the officials of "Keshla", "Garabagh", "Gabala", "Neftchi", "Sabah", "Sabail", "Sumgayit" and "Zira" clubs expressed their views on the issues discussed and asked questions of their interests. The representatives of all clubs said that the stadiums and bases were disinfected accordingly. As the proposal to make 5 substitutions with 3 breaks in the championship games was supported by all clubs, it was decided to include the issue in the agenda of the next meeting of the Executive Committee. It was agreed to wait for a possible recovery date of the Premier League to clarify the schedule of cup games. Clarification of the games in the first division and children's leagues will be regulated by the quarantine regime of the COVID-19 pandemic and the relevant decisions of the Operational Headquarters under the Cabinet of Ministers. As a response to AFFA's recommendation that the squads of coaches and players of Premier League clubs be tested for coronavirus, all clubs said that the process had already begun and was continuing.
Executive Vice President Elkhan Mammadov said that AFFA will provide financial assistance to each Premier League club to conduct the tests and the relevant funds will be transferred to the clubs' accounts on May 15.
The officials of Premier League clubs said they supported the  proposals of AFFA and PFL to restore the championship in accordance with the decisions of the Operational Headquarters under the Cabinet of Ministers, following the relevant medical instructions.
