After completing the LOTTO Lubelskie Cup campaign, the Pitmen headed to the mountain town of Crans-Montana. Here, Shakhtar will hold the final part of the training camps before the start of the 2015-16 football season.

After nearly a three-hour flight, the plane with the players and coaching staff landed at the Geneva airport. Another two hours on the bus – and the team reached the final destination.  Then, Shakhtar are scheduled to have a dinner, take a rest and hold an evening training session.
