They discussed the state of hockey in Russia and prospects of our Krasnoyarsk team as well as the future 29th Winter Universiade Krasnoyarsk 2019, the programme of which includes bandy as a demo view.

The head of the region noted that this sport is of special importance for Krasnoyarsk citizens that is why the administration of the region and the Directorate of the 29th Winter Universiade Krasnoyarsk 2019 did their best to include bandy into the competition programme. “Bandy obtained a special place in the life of our city. It is an open to everyone, mass and affordable sport, which gained many loyal fans here. I hope that reconstruction of the Yenisei Stadium will help not only our professional team to move to a new level but will attract more and more citizens to sports activity.” said Viktor Tolokonsky.

In addition, today the Governor took part in the presentation of the book We Play for Russia. Chronicle of victories of the legendary Yenisei Hockey Club, which includes stories of development and achievements of the Krasnoyarsk club players from the moment of its foundation. Viktor Tolokonsky highlighted that this book is important not only as homage of the veterans of sports but it will be useful for the coming generation that will be able to learn from the examples of the best players. “History of sport is always history of the country. Having read this book the honoured athletes will remember their challenging way to success, and those who passed away; and for young hockey players the book will become a source of inspiration,” said Viktor Tolokonsky. We should note that the decision on reconstruction of the Yenisei Stadium was made after decision on the bandy’s inclusion into the competition programme of the 29th Winter Universiade Krasnoyarsk 2019. It is planned to reconstruct the ice arena into the roofed one in order to give the hockey players an opportunity to skate the year round. Now, the procedure of preparing documents for design of the venue is coming to an end. Approximate date of completion of the construction is the end of the year 2018.
