ArmInfo. 'I am a maximalist by nature and I expect only victory in
6 September match of Armenia vs Turkey - 2010 FIFA World Cup draw',
President of Football Federation of Armenia Ruben Hayrapetyan said
at a press conference Tuesday.

He said all the players of the Armenian team except four have already
arrived in Yerevan and are in top form and ready to fight. 'In case
of success, players will get a solid prize', FFA president said. He
ruled out any political motives of the upcoming match and categorically
banned any political propaganda on tribunes.

R. Hayrapetyan said FFA provided FIFA quota for Turkish and however
Turkey has not made any relevant application so far except application
for 15 VIP-seats and 115 tickets. Alongside with local media 100
journalists from Turkey and 150 journalists from other states will
cover the match. FFA President urged the fans of Armenian team to
arrive at the Hrazdan Stadium at least 30 minutes before the match
to avoid jam and crowd. 'Hrazdan Stadium has 55,000 seats and police
will be just unable to prevent jams of dozens of thousands of people
arrive at the stadium 10 minutes before the match', Hayrapetyan said.
