The Russian football union has been considering a switch to the Asian Football Confederation. However, the union’s members who are part of the executive committee have not yet expressed their intent. Alexander Dyukov is head of the union and stated that their intent is not yet clear whether they want to switch over to the Asian federation. It is considered a possibility since the confederation has been suspended by the European confederation UEFA. It is also a reason why many footballers from individual clubs in Russia are looking to transfer to other international clubs.
