Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin and the president of «Lukoil» Vagit Alekperov visited the construction site.
«It’s very good that people who are in charge of the construction are closely involved in football», - emphasized Mr Sobyanin before visiting the headquarters for a brief meeting together with Vagit Alekperov, Leonid Fedun and construction managers.
«This is the very first stadium to be built with private money, - noted Lukoil President Vagit Alekperov. – I have no doubts that today’s visit by Sergei Sobyanin will make it possible to solve many issues with regard to further construction stages and facilitate the process».
«First of all we very much appreciate that the Mayor has visited our site, - said Leonid Fedun, Chairman of the «Spartak» Board of Directors. – The fist match, I hope will take place here already in February 2014. By this time we plan to have in place an interchange from Volokolamskoye Shosse and a railway platform, allowing to arrive from Rizhsky railroad terminal in a short time, very conveniently. And on top of it – the new metro station, although Tushinskaya metro station is very close as well. It’s planned that not only the spectators will be able to leave the stands over several minutes after the final whistle, but six and half thousand cars will also be able to drive away from car parks to be built here rather quickly. In a word, this will be a XXI century stadium».
