Crimean Football Hub Creation Prospects to Be Discussed at YIEF-2017

Crimea’s potential as a training ground for Russian football teams will be discussed at the III Yalta International Economic Forum to take place this April 20, 21 and 22, as reported by Georgy Bryusov, member of the Board of the YIEF Foundation and Extraordinary Counsellor to the Head of the Republic of Crimea.

During the YIEF-2017 Programme Committee meeting, Mr. Bryusov announced that the key topics at the industrial section “Integration Through Sport” would be creation of conditions for off-season training of football players in Crimea and overall development of football in the region. The discussion, prepared together with the Russian Football Union, will take place on April 20, the first day of YIEF-2017, at the main Forum venue: Mriya Resort&Spa hotel.

“Football is an unconditional growth driver in the sport tourism industry and it may become so for Crimea in the context of import substitution and market shifts. The unique natural and climatic characteristics of Crimea allow for creation of seasonal sport hubs. We can offer all our teams the opportunity to hold off-season training in Crimea instead of Turkey, Spain or Portugal. They can reform and train here”, Georgy Bryusov said.

Mr. Bryusov is sure that Crimea can become the centre for Russian football players’ training in a relatively short time. “Crimea still has wonderful experience of such work left over from Soviet times”, according to the Extraordinary Counsellor to the Head of the Republic of Crimea on sports.
