And although the phygital sports discipline is completely new, among the competition participants there are those who are already familiar with the innovative sport, and those for whom it is new. But they are all united by their love for football in any of its formats.

– I decided to participate in competitions because I love football, like everyone else, my city has its own team. This game gives incredible emotions, incomparable with anything else. I like football. And the digital format is interesting because not all soccer fans know how to play on a real field. Here is an opportunity for all players to prove themselves,-Misha Buchman from Novosibirsk shared his impressions of the competition.

It is interesting that Mikhail will have to meet professional players of his age category on the field. But experience and talent in the field of phygital sports do not guarantee victory in the general classification. Everything will be decided by the sum of points in a real game and with a playstation joystick in hand.

I have a contract with the club “Atletico” from the city of Artem, Primorsky Krai. I don’t particularly play futsal, but a seven-on-seven game is also good. In the combo format, I like the speeds. I think this kind of sport has a future, Gleb Gorbunov from Vladivostok is sure.
