Governor Mikhail Razvozhaev and Deputy Minister of Sports of Russia Odes Baysultanov launched the joint football championship “Commonwealth”, which opened on March 30 in Sevastopol.

I am grateful to the Deputy Minister of Sports of the Russian Federation Odes Khasaevich Baysultanov, who today personally came to Sevastopol to kick off the tournament, which symbolically begins here. I believe that the Commonwealth Championship is a new page in patriotic football in the country. We show everyone our unity, patriotism and our will for peaceful development. We play football, we believe in our Victory and in the future of Russian football! – the press service of the Government of Sevastopol quotes the city governor.

We worked a lot together with Mikhail Vladimirovich, and I always liked that special attention is paid to sports in Sevastopol. Sport is one of the best areas for the socialization of children and adolescents. And the championship, which opened today, is aimed at making our guys, athletes from new regions of Russia, feel like one big friendly family. Hence the name – “Commonwealth”. We are all united and this is our strengthsaid the Deputy Minister of Sports.

Oleg Chernousov expressed the opinion that sports competitions such as the Commonwealth Championship act as an incentive for young athletes.

In 1972, the Zarya football club was the champion of the USSR. It was formed in 1923, and since then we have been writing our history. I am convinced that the most important thing in sports is to set an example for young people, to show that it is necessary to lead a healthy lifestyle, train a lot, and go to such tournaments. This is a high level. In competitions such as the Commonwealth Championship, the unity of our country“, concluded the deputy head of the administration of the head of the LPR.
