12.09.2016

New multifunctional sports ground was opened at the territory of municipal school No. 92 in Krasnooktyabrsky district in Volgograd on 9 September 2016.

Among the participants of the great opening were:

Y.G. Isinbaeva – two-time Olympic champion, President of the Charity Foundation;

A.S. Glinanov – chairman of the Committee for Physical culture and Sport of the Volgograd region, honored coach of Russia;

A.V. Kosolapov – Volgograd city manager, chairman of the supervisory board of Yelena Isinbaeva Charity Foundation;

The sports ground has been constructed within the frames of a federal target program “Physical training and sports development in the Russian Federation in 2016-2020”, which is supervised by Yelena Isinbaeva Charity Foundation.

Yelena Isinbaeva Charity Foundation has developed multifunctional sports ground project, which successfully passed all-Russian competition for the best sports complex, organized by the Ministry of Sport of the Russian Federation, and was recommended for construction on a nationwide scale.

Six more sports grounds will be constructed during 2016: five of which will be constructed in Volgograd, and one – in Volzhsky. In 2015, Volgograd welcomed 6 similar sports grounds within the frames of a federal target program “Physical training and sports development in the Russian Federation in 2006-2015”. Estimated cost of each ground totals to 4.3 million rubles.

Location for multifunctional sports ground construction was chosen after a competition, which was held in autumn 2015: people were sending a list of documents necessary for consideration. More than 120 applications from the Volgograd region have been gathered during the competition. Supervisory board of the Charity Foundation has approved 30 locations for construction, 20 of which are situated in Volgograd, another 4 in Volzhsky and the remaining 6 in other regional cities.

All sports grounds, constructed by Yelena Isinbaeva Charity Foundation, are free for everybody who is interested in leading a healthy lifestyle!
