He read out a congratulatory telegram from the head of CSKA, Colonel Artyom Gromov, and presented the personnel of the sports center with a new uniform and protective masks with symbols.

You can rightfully be proud of the bright pages of your history, the names of those who stood at the origins of the creation of the first sports club of the army in the Armed Forces of the USSR, those who ensure its authority and relevance today, – read Roman Makhonin.

Representatives of the Central Military District and the Military Commissariat of the Sverdlovsk Region also took part in the event as guests of honor. Due to the epidemiological situation, a live broadcast was organized for the veterans of the sports club. After the words of congratulations to all the honored guests, the personnel of the sports center congratulated the military orchestra of the Central Military District and representatives of the amateur performances.

At the end of the holiday, a mini-football blitz tournament was organized. A team led by the head of the branch Roman Makhonin, who personally scored several goals, took part in it.

Historical reference:

The SKA Army Sports Club was formed at the District House of Officers of the Ural Military District (now the Central Military District) on October 8, 1948 by decree No. 35 of the commander of the Ural Military District, Marshal of the Soviet Union Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov.

By creating the club, Marshal Zhukov planned to improve general physical training in military units and improve the structure of organization and management of army sports in the district.
