Speaking at the plenary session, Andrei Peregoudov noted the importance of sports for building strong economic relationships among the countries. According to Andrei Peregoudov, the basketball development is an especially topical issue.
“Everything is ready for the signing of a very important agreement on hosting the 2019 Euroleague Final Four in Moscow at VTB Arena, which is the most prestigious European basketball tournament among professional male clubs,” said Andrei Peregoudov adding that the Euroleague President Jordi Bertomeu is coming to St. Petersburg especially to sign the agreement. “We are sure that hosting this tournament in Moscow will become an important step in promotion of basketball and other sports in Russia,” added the head of VTB Arena Park.
At this event Andrei Peregoudov announced the VTB Arena Open: Match of Two Capitals Gala basketball game between the Moscow and St. Petersburg selection teams for the Roscongress Fund Cup will take place on June 01, 2017, 16-00 hrs at the Nova Arena.
The same day, VTB Arena Park presented the VTB Arena Open interactive basketball mini-ground. After the presentation the interactive mini-ground hosted a basketball master class, contests, and quizzes with commemorative prizes. At the project stand during the entire Forum, the guest will have an opportunity to escape from the fuss and economic problems by practicing accurate shots under the supervision of professional basketball trainers and to learn about the VTB Arena Park in more detail. The exhibition stand of VTB Arena Park attracted a lot of attention from the guest of SPIEF 2017. On the first day it was visited by such honored guests as State Duma Deputy and three times Olympic champion in Greco-Roman wrestling Alexander Karelin and Georgy Romanov, the descendant of the Romanov royal family.
