Glorax Group to Build an Artificial Football Pitch in Moscow Region

Glorax Group established by Andrey Birzhin is building a modern football pitch in Sergiev Posad district.

“The project is being implemented on the basis of the Olimp sports complex, which is managed by the Group, – said Alexander Andrianov, Glorax Group Director General. – To us, it is not just current investment in one of our areas of business. It is also our contribution to the development of socially significant infrastructure of the district”.

The 60×40 meter pitch will be equipped with artificial turf and drainage system, which will make it possible to use the pitch almost all year round and substantially extend the competitive season. There is also high-quality lighting on the perimeter and the grandstand. Technical parameters of the pitch meet the best European quality, comfort and safety standards.
Sergiev Posad district is one of the largest municipalities of Moscow region. Currently, there is only one functioning artificial football pitch built at the expense of the regional budget. Therefore, the new object at the investor’s initiative has been long-awaited.

“It is important for popularization of healthy and active lifestyle among people, and the development of youth sports. The new football pitch of this format will become a good ground for training camps for teams of various levels, as well as for competitions among municipal and regional teams, youth team tournaments including the Premier League, – clarified Alexander Trigubchak, the Olimp sports complex Director General.

Currently, excavation works on preparation of the pitch base are carried out. The pitch is expected to be put into operation in 2016. The Olimp management intends to involve big-name coaches in training process and master classes.
