CONIFA Keeps Growing! Lezghian FA Approved as a Member

The CONIFA family keeps growing steadily and is able to welcome its latest member – the Lezghian Football Association representing Lezghians around the world!

The Lezghian People are a minority from Dagestan (Russia) and Northern Azerbaijan that are looking back to 2400 years of history.

However, they just started to organize themselves in terms of football recently and are hoping to have some first friendly matches in their home stadium in the stadium of Magaramkent (Dagestan, Russia), which serves as their home stadium. Besides that the team is eager to play in CONIFA tournaments as soon as possible and test themselves on the biggest possible stage!

Once again a warm welcome to our 28th member and our 5th Asian member!

Read more about our newest members and ways to contact them directly on their CONIFA member page.
