Cancellation of two postal miniatures dedicated to the 26th anniversary of the Sheriff football club took place at the capital’s main post office. The first prints on the First Day Envelope (FDC) were made by the goalkeeper and coach of the Sheriff goalkeepers Sergey Pashchenko, the president of the Transnistrian Football Federation Pavel Prokudin and the club’s press secretary Miroslav Primovich. Sergei Pashchenko also signed the FDC, which he handed over to the students of the Sheriff Football Academy.
The overprint on a postage stamp with a face value “D” from the set “World Cup 2022” was made by embossing with gold and silver foil.
