500 fans attended autograph session of Azevedo

Sunday, February 26, 2017



Before the match against Poltava-based Vorskla, the newly opened Shakhtar Fan Shop at the OSC Metalist was visited by Shakhtar defender Marcio Azevedo

The Brazilian is not the first guest of Shakhtar’s club shop. Let us remind you that the Fan Shop opening event was attended by the legendary former Shakhtar player Vyacheslav Shevchuk.

Hundreds of Shakhtar fans gathered to talk to, get an autograph and take pictures with Azevedo.

- I have been a fan of Shakhtar for seven years now, - says Kostiantyn Kotov from Donetsk. - After the start of hostilities in Donetsk, I went to Kharkiv, still continuing to follow the games of my favourite team. I am very happy that Shakhtar will be playing here now. I attended the game against Celta, today I’m going to attend the game vs Vorskla, and I will try to be present at every game of the Donetsk team. It’s cool that the club organises such autograph sessions, where you can not only take pictures, but also talk to the player. I really like the Fan Shop: a lot of merchandise, everything is beautifully decorated. I’ve purchased a branded Shakhtar scarf.

- It’s a very good idea to invite players for autograph sessions, - a fan from Donetsk Danylo Yeroshkin shares his impression. - I hope this is not the last event. I would like to meet with the players more often. I have been a fan of Shakhtar from early age. I attended nearly all of the games, I had a season ticket to the School Club at the Donbass Arena. Now I live in Kharkiv, so I was delighted by the news that my favourite club would play here. I attended the previous game, also coming to the stadium this afternoon.

The club shop at OSC Metalist (65 Plekhanivska St; Sportyvna underground station) is open daily from 10:00 to 20:00 without breaks and days off. You can buy player kits, footballs, boots, bags, sportswear, souvenirs and all sorts of merchandise at the fan shop with the floor area of 400 sq.m.
