For our club, protection of the interests of Torpedo representatives is always in the first place, and we hope that with this appeal we will draw attention to the systemic nature of refereeing mistakes and subsequent questionable decisions of the ESC, which are further challenged by both the FTC and the appeal committee,” the statement says. club.
