August 18, 2021

The army team will hold master classes, visit the mines and test themselves in a culinary show.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The leader of Russian basketball CSKA, at the invitation of Nornickel, will start the season on Taimyr on 23 August with a match against the Norilsk division team.

The Olympic medalist, the most productive player of Eroliga-2021 Alexey Shved returns to the team of renowned army men. The Norilsk people will be the first to see him in the red and blue uniform. In addition, fans will find a specially prepared show program with contests.

The match will take place in the Aika sports complex, which opened last winter and has already become the center of the sports life of the Arctic.

Recall that in April 2021, excellent stars fought against amateur hockey players on the ice field of the new sports complex in the Hockey Legends charity match held in Norilsk at the initiative of Nornickel president Vladimir Potanin. Before the game, eminent athletes held a winter sports master class for the pupils of the school. In addition, Dmitry Guberniev, who was commenting on the game, told Norilsk teenagers at the Severny Gorod media company about how he “lives on the air”.

In addition, during the Arctic Cup 2021 International Curling Tournament, Russian presidential aide Igor Levitin held an expanded meeting on the development of sports and tourism in the Arctic at Aika sports palace.

The CSKA will stay in the Arctic for two days. Basketball players will visit the Komsomolsky and Octyabrsky mines, as well as the Copper plant. Before the game, athletes will hold two master classes for children and a training seminar for coaches.

The army team will take part in the culinary show Taste of Victory, and the team captain Nikita Kurbanov will try on one of the working professions in the Different Matter Severny Gorod media company’s project.

The live broadcast of the match on 23 August can be watched at 18.45 Norilsk time on the YouTube channel, as well as on the Severny Gorod TV channel.
