In Khust, the authorities plan to build a new sports complex on the site of the stadium
This was discussed during the meeting of the head of the region Hennadiy Moskal with the Minister of Youth and Sport Igor Zhdanov. The Minister attended the opening of the Ukraine's downhill skiing championship on the Krasiya and got familiarized with the project of a new stadium in the city of Khust.
The project estimates for the new facility are ready. Its cost, according to the preliminary estimate, will be UAH 38 million. The construction of the facility is to be financed from the State Fund for Regional Development. "There will be an athletics stadium, football field with artificial turf, as well as handball and volleyball fields. Its capacity will allow to hold not only nationwide competitions, but also, given the proximity of the borders, international ones, subject to the relevant certificates.
This will give impetus to the development of sports not only in Transcarpathia, but in Ukraine in general", - the Minister said.
Hennadiy Moskal raised the issue of holding in the region the competitions of the highest level to replace the temporarily occupied territories of the country. He pointed out the benefits available in Transcarpathia - recreation, tourism and resort potential and climatic conditions.
Igor Zhdanov named the development of ski sports in Transcarpathia among the priorities.
