The kids did a good job and we always felt the support of the Cultural and Sports Complex. As a coach, I want to note that ALROSA supports the development of children's sports and trips to competitions outside the district and Yakutia. Even our youngest football players, boys born in 2008, traveled to competitions twice this year: the all-Russian tournament in Kazan and the Republican competition in Yakutsk. This is not only an experience for them, but also motivation," says Andrey Kulagin.
