The most powerful sport at the II CIS Games in Minsk.
On Saturday, August 5, Minsk will host the official opening of a major tournament – the II CIS Games. But even an hour before the start of the ceremony in the capital of Belarus, the Russian beach soccer team will play its first match within the framework of this sports holiday. For our team, which was isolated by FIFA sanctions, this is the main start of the year. And you should not treat him ironically or condescendingly, looking at the name. At the Minsk arena, not only representatives of the CIS countries will perform, but also teams from Iran, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Egypt; the teams, to put it mildly, are far from the last. So the battle for first place will be really intense.
“Championship” will conduct an online broadcast of all matches of the Russian team in the tournament. On the first day of the group stage, on August 5, Russia will play the Egyptian team. Follow the game with us.
The match starts at 15:30 Moscow time.
