Shakhtar Social’s Come On, Let’s Play project for the development of children's grassroots football continues expanding its presence

On October 29, in Myrnohrad, Donetsk region, they held the first training session on a new football pitch in Molodizhnyi district that was constructed by the project partner Donetskstal. The opening event was attended by the company's CEO Ildar Saleev and the town mayor Oleksandr Brykalov.

Here, as part of the Come On, Let’s Play! project, 70 children will be able to play football for free. The event’s guest was Yaroslav Skidan, the FC Shakhtar Academy scouting coach. He watched the opening games and awarded the winners of football contests.
“Thanks to FC Shakhtar, we can now conduct free training sessions on this field within the framework of the Come On, Let’s Play! project”, pointed out Ildar Saleev, the CEO of Donetskstal. “I am sure that this project will provide an additional opportunity for the children of our employees and town residents to unlock their potential. Children's football is more than just sport and physical development. This is good mood and health, new friends, perseverance, determination, and the ability to be part of the team.”

Myrnohrad is the 33rd settlement on the Come On, Let’s Play! map. The town is a few kilometres away from Pokrovsk, where the project has also been implemented since August this year. We invite all the interested boys and girls aged 7 to 12 to attend the training sessions!
