Dmitry Punin sells FC Karmiotissa and leaves post of president of the club

FC Karmiotissa has announced that Dmitry Punin, who has been the owner and President of the football club , is stepping down from the position of President following the sale of the club. The transaction amount has not been disclosed.

Dmitry Punin actively participated in the management of the club, investing financial resources, knowledge, and experience in its development. Under Dmitry's initiative, renowned international-level specialists such as Alexander Khatskevich, Alexander Kerzhakov, and Florin Bratu were invited to the position of head coach. In the year under Punin’s leadership, the team from the suburbs of Limassol signed contracts with 25 new players from 8 countries, including well-known footballers such as central defender Tomas Hubocan from Slovakia and striker Emilio Zelaya from Argentina. This allowed the club not only to maintain its position in the First Division but also to competently oppose the top five teams in Cyprus. Additionally, the club undertook the reconstruction of its sports base.

Dmitry Punin, President of PUNIN GROUP, said: "I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the fans of FC Karmiotissa. Your support and loyalty to the club are invaluable. You are the soul and heart of the club. I also want to say a big thank you to the players and coaching staff. Your professionalism, dedication, and efforts have brought significant success and unforgettable moments to the club. It was a pleasure and interesting to work with such a talented and strong team, and I am proud to have been at the helm of Karmiotissa.

At the moment, I would like to focus on the core business interests of PUNIN GROUP. The group is rapidly developing in several directions. They require my direct involvement and time. I am leaving football, but not abandoning the club. PUNIN GROUP will remain the general sponsor of the club for the upcoming 2023/24 season."
