Proposed by “Kryshtalevy” Public Self-Organization Committee, the project for creation of the sports ground became one of the winners of the competition “We Improve the City” and received a grant of 50 thousand UAH from the Company. With its numerous fitness machines and training facilities, the new complex opens up the opportunity for the children living in Prymorsky district as well as in other districts of the city to keep a healthy lifestyle by taking regular exercises.
“It is the second sports ground we are opening in Prymorsky district these month. Metinvest and the enterprises of the city keep supporting the ideas proposed by citizens of Mariupol to improve their native city. The place is pleasant here. How wonderful it would be if as many children as possible take sports here and we see their happy smiles”, – said Konstantin Voitsekhovky, Director for Human Resources and Administration, PJSC “AZOVSTAL IRON & STEEL WORKS”.

We are grateful to Metinvest Company. We are so glad to have the place where the children will be able to take regular exercises and improve themselves. One thing I have to ask from our people – please, let’s keep what Metinvest and the city do for us”, – calls Natalia Shevchenko, the Head of “Kryshtalevy” Public Self-Organization Committee.
