Due to UEFA limitations “FC Infonet” will use the name “FCI Tallinn” (FCI).
In accordance with article 6.03 of the UEFA Europa League regulations:
“The club may use its name and/or logo provided all the following requirements are satisfied:
a) the name is mentioned in the statutes of the club;
b) if required by national law, it is registered with the chamber of commerce or equivalent body;
c) it is registered at its association and used in national competitions;
d) the name and logo do not refer to the name of a commercial partner. Exceptions to this rule may be granted by the UEFA administration in case of particular hardship (e.g. long-term existing name, etc.) at the reasoned request of the club concerned. If so requested, the club must provide the UEFA administration with the necessary evidence.” (emphasis added
Unfortunately, after having carefully checked the background of the club and name, UEFA came to the conclusion
that the name “FC Infonet” is not in line with the above mentioned provision.
As a consequence, we kindly inform you that as of now FC Infonet will use the name “FCI Tallinn” (FCI) in any further official communication. In addition, the used logo in official communications was adapted accordingly.
We thank FC Infonet supporters for your understanding in this matter.
