Let's Play on the Arena Lviv
Monday, August 22, 2016
During the half-time in the Shakhtar vs Dnipro match, the participants of the Let's Play project came out onto the pitch of the Arena Lviv
Eight of the best and most active young footballers had a short warm-up and had a chance to take on Shakhtar players: Mykyta Shevchenko, Sergii Kryvtsov, Taras Stepanenko and Bohdan Butko. It does not matter who was the training match. But it can be confidently said that the guys got a lot of positive emotions.
– I am very happy to have played with Shakhtar footballers - 11-year-old Vadym Bodnar says sharing his impression. - I really liked it. I have been training in this project for almost a year, and I have not missed a single class. During the training, we do a lot of different exercises, we learn new football techniques. Also, we often talk to the players. And I also go out on the field with the team before the start of the Pitmen's home games.
The Let's, Play! project has been operating since the autumn of 2015 in Lviv. About 60 boys regularly train at 3 venues in the city. Every month they participate in a variety of Shakhtar events, regularly meeting with the players of the first team during workshop lessons.
