Bashkiria is sports facilities leader in Russia

The Republic of Bashkortostan ranks second in the number of sports facilities after Moscow. Prime Minister Andrey Nazarov chaired a government meeting at which participants discussed sports development issues in the region, reporting the press service of the republic's government.

Thus, four large sports centers were built in 59 municipalities—the Sports Training Center of the Republic, the Gymnastics Center, and the Complex of Rowing Slalom Facilities. Twelve sports and recreation complexes, five indoor ice arenas, and two swimming pools were also built. 56 sites have been installed to pass the standards of the GTO complex. Three stadiums and one swimming pool were reconstructed.

The Minister of Sports of the Republic, Ruslan Khabibov, spoke in more detail about events aimed at developing sports in the region, including the progress of the construction of sports facilities. According to the speaker, there are 13,363 sports facilities in the republic. More than 2 million people, 58.2%, are systematically involved in physical culture and sports. By 2030, this figure should be 70%.

The republic continues to implement the projects “Rural Coach,” “City Coach,” “Healthy Generation—Strong Region,” and “Wrestling—in Schools.” A republican sports award and state sports scholarships have been established for outstanding athletes and coaches.

The Minister of Sports continued to launch the pilot project “Affordable Sports for Everyone.” This project involves creating multifunctional sports grounds for team sports and workouts.
