The sports base of the Fyodor Cherenkov FC Spartak Academy in Sokolniki is planned to be reconstructed. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin announced this during her inspection.
“The Academy decided to start updating the entire infrastructure – make new fields, a new stadium, a swimming pool. Nearby there is a wonderful reconstructed tennis center, they made a hockey center, but the football center of the Spartak Academy does not look very good, although, of course, this is such a sacred place. I think it’s interesting to work here. I hope that after the implementation of this project it will be one of the best football centers in our country. Let’s look at the concept. The main thing is that the kids like it, that it’s comfortable to practice here,” Sobyanin said during a visit with philanthropist Vagit Alekperov to the sports complex of the Spartak football academy.
As reported in the press service of the mayor and government of Moscow, the sports complex of the Spartak football academy in Sokolniki was opened in 2009. It also hosts official competitions and tournaments for children’s and youth teams under the auspices of the Russian Football Union and the Moscow Football Federation.
The draft concept for the reconstruction of the sports complex of the Spartak FC Academy includes the creation of a football stadium with stands for 7.5 thousand spectators, an indoor arena with stands for 500 spectators, a field, a gym and game rooms; network of open fields, four tennis courts.
It is also planned to improve the adjacent park area with the construction of an open amphitheater for watching football matches and movies, a children’s playground, a workout area and other facilities. The total capacity of the complex will be up to 1.5 thousand visits per day, during training – up to 500 people. When athletes are not training, the updated sports complex will be open to everyone.
