Football is a real man’s game, which is popular in our city, in the region, and in the country. For boys who are passionate about this sport, we have all the conditions.

The tournament will last two days, during which all participating teams will meet on the football field in matches. One of them is a squad of young football players from Ryazhsk.

“We became winners of the zonal stage in the city of Korablino and reached the final, showing a good level of play,” said Anatoly Ponomarev, head coach of the Spartak (Ryazhsk) children’s team. – We prepared seriously for the competition, we trained at our place – at the Lokomotiv stadium. I am in Skopin for the first time with the children’s team, but I was here before as a player. The conditions for the tournament are good here.”
