Rustem Khamitov mentioned possibility of new arena construction for FC Ufa

UFA, 26 July 2017. /Bashinform News Agency, Dmitry Slezin/. The Head of the Republic, Rustem Khamitov, did not rule out a possibility of building a new arena for FC Ufa in his interview with the Bashkortostan TV and Radio Company and Bashkortostan branch of All-Russian State TV and Radio Broadcasting Company.
"We had 12.5 thousand visitors at the stadium during a football match with Spartak. This is quite a lot for Ufa. Other major teams will also come here. I hope that the figures will be even higher," the head of the region expressed his hope. "Now holidays are going on, young people, students are outside the city. And for sure we will face a problem of spare tickets at the Neftyanik stadium. It is аll right. I'm afraid to guess at the future, but eventually a question about a new stadium construction may be raised. This, of course, is quite expensive. But we must also think about it, because we are developing", Rustem Khamitov explained.
