Zaev: Issue of North Macedonia Team’s Name at EURO 2020 Will Be Resolved

SKOPJE — North Macedonia's Prime Minister Zoran Zaev, in a written statement to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) and public broadcaster ERT on Friday, said that the issue that has arisen concerning the kit worn by the country's national team in the EURO 2020 has already been raised and will be resolved on the basis of the Prespa Agreement and UEFA rules.

The team's kit bears the initials FFM, for Football Federation of Macedonia.

"All of Europe knows that our national football team represents North Macedonia at the Championship. Even if the Federation is not a public entity, the national team is. As it is in all countries in the world. So it is and should be clear on all levels and to everyone that it is the national team of North Macedonia, irrelevant of the initials of the Federation on the kit," Zaev said.

"We have already raised this aspect with the Federation and will resolve the issue on the basis of the Prespa Agreement and the UEFA rules and tradition in the upcoming period," he added.

"[The] Prespa agreement's implementation is a work in progress and our goal is to gradually find solutions with our neighbours that implement the Agreement and move us forward on the basis of cooperation and mutual respect," Zaev underlined.
