- The Come On, Let's Play! project has been successfully operating for several years now – initially in Donetsk, and since last year in Lviv. It brings people great benefits: children develop physically, get positive emotions from the game, leave their PCs for a while, - says Dmytro Shutkov. – It's great that now the participants in the Come on, Let’s Play! project have the opportunity to play football outdoors and communicate with the current Shakhtar players!

Let us remind you that the Come on, Let’s Play! project was launched on October 1, 2015, being very popular in Donetsk for several years now. In the homeland of Shakhtar, over 200 children aged 7 to 12 are involved in playing football, alongside with regular competitions being held among the teams.
