Shakhtar arrived in USA

After travelling for more than 36 hours, the Pitmen safely reached the venue for the first part of the winter training camp. The team and the coaching staff have settled at the sports centre in the town of Bradenton (FL).

Let us remind you that late on January 10, Shakhtar flew from Kyiv to Frankfurt, and the next morning they left for Dallas. After over 11 hours of air trip, the team landed in Texas. From there, the Pitmen had another flight to Orlando. Finally, they had a two-hour bus trip to Bradenton.

After being accommodated, the players and the coaching staff immediately went to rest after a tiring trip. Shakhtar have long days of training ahead, alongside participation in the Florida Cup and a series of friendly matches. Initially though, they have to adapt to the new time zone as there is a seven-hour time difference between Kyiv and Bradenton.
