In early December a rally was held to celebrate the opening of the renovated ports hall at the physical culture and sports faculty of the Kirovograd pedagogic university named after V. Vinnichenko. The cost of the renovation approximated 2,5 mln UAH, and was paid by “Velta”.
The new hall is the place of training and playing for the three basketball teams of the Kirovograd region – “Kirovograd”, “Kirovograd-2” men’s clubs, and “Elisavet – Basket” women’s club. The works were carried out due to the joint efforts of the “Velta” company – the title sponsor of the “Kirovograd” basketball club (“Velta” covered all costs of the sports facility renovation), the Kirovograd region state administration, the regional federation of basketball.The renovated sports facility is the first and the only (as of today) sports arena in the Kirovograd region, which is adequate to the current world level. The floor is covered with special Hungarian parquet made of sports planks with a special marking-out that meets the international requirements. All the game information will be demonstrated on a large information board with a running data line.
New higher strength boards, a stand for 160 seats, and spectators’ balconies were also installed in the hall. A special acoustic system was provided. For the arbiters there is a special premise to get prepared for the game and to revise the game recordings for settling disputable issues. The interior of the cloak-rooms for the game participants was completely renovated and upgraded. Before the entrance to the sports hall there is a photo gallery of the sports stars – the best students and graduates of the physical culture and sports faculty who achieved maximum success at national and international sports competitions and tournaments.
After the opening ceremony there was a Ukraine higher league championship tournament between the “Kirovograd” basketball team and “Avantazh-Politekh” (Kharkiv).
