Shakhtar invited children to their training session

Sunday, August 7, 2016



On the morning of the match day with Oleksandriya, the Pitmen held a training session on the Arena Lviv

Today's morning session was watched by participants of the Come on, Let's Play project. About 50 children came with their parents to see the team preparing for a league game.

- I've never seen Shakhtar train in person, - says Dmytro, a member of the Come on, Let's Play! project. - It is very interesting to see the players preparing for the match. I have been a Shakhtar fan for a long time, and together with parents or friends I often come to the Arena Lviv. The last time I came to see them play the Champions League game against Young Boys. My favourite players on the team are Marlos, Darijo Srna and Fred.

After training, the kids had a chance to talk to their heroes, play soccer, take pictures and get autographs. In turn, the players invited the children to support them in today's game against Oleksandriya and gave everyone tickets to the game.

We would like to remind you, that the 3rd round Premier League match Shakhtar v Oleksandriya will take place today at 7:30 p.m. The game will be broadcast live on Futbol 1 TV channel. You can also follow a live text commentary on
