On September 7, a friendly mini-football match between the teams of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergencies of Russia in St. Petersburg and the mining and metallurgical company Norilsk Nickel took place in the Aika sports hall in Norilsk.

The participants of the match were greeted by the First Deputy Minister Alexander Chupriyan. He told the story of the St. Petersburg football club, created in 1991: “Almost 30 years ago, nine of our firefighters died while extinguishing a fire in the Leningrad Hotel. After 2 years, we played the first friendly match dedicated to their memory. This is how the Firefighter was born, – said the First Deputy Minister.

The first hit on the ball was made by A. Chupriyan, who started the friendly match.

The struggle was stubborn, the teams did not want to give in to each other. In the intervals between the halves, the creative teams of the Russian Emergencies Ministry and the cheerleader teams performed in front of the fans.

The victory was won by the players of Norilsk Nickel, the final score was 2: 1.

Let’s add that playing mini-football is very important for the EMERCOM employees of Russia. It requires not only well-coordinated team play and excellent coordination, but also the ability to build strategy and tactics. All these skills are applied in fire and rescue operations.

On September 6, a friendly hockey match between the teams of the Central Office of the EMERCOM of Russia and representatives of the administration of Norilsk and Norilsk Nickel ended with a score of 5: 2 in favor of the team of the emergency department.
