Historical chronicles: from the first pile to the opening ceremony of the Yubileiny ice palace

At the end of February 2010, at the base of the Yubileiny ice palace in Novomoskovsk, after driving the first piles into the ground, the dean of the Novomoskovsk district of the Russian Orthodox Church, Archimandrite Lavr held a ceremony to consecrate the future "temple of sports". Then, according to worldly tradition, a bottle of champagne was broken on one of the piles ...

May 20, 2011 "Yubileyny" was opened!

The honored guests who held high positions at that time took part in the solemn event: Svetlana Zhurova, Deputy Chairman of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, Egor Atanov and Anatoly Vaskov, members of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, Pavel Novikov, Deputy Minister of Sports, Tourism and Youth Policy, General Director of MCC EuroChem Dmitry Strezhnev, deputies of the Tula Regional Duma and, of course, residents of Novomoskovsk.

Before the opening ceremony, the building of the ice palace was consecrated according to the Orthodox rite. Then the guests of honor of the ceremony cut the symbolic red ribbon. For the honored guests, a tour of the new building was conducted, telling about the history of the project and how the construction was carried out.

... Then it was planned that about 100 people would be studying in the youth sports school created on the basis of the ice palace. Who then could know that in a few years Novomoskovsk will become the capital of children's hockey!

At the opening ceremony, each of the novice athletes was awarded a commemorative medal, and EuroChem provided the children with a sports uniform.

The official part ended with fireworks, after which the skaters entered the ice arena with demonstrations. Sports enthusiasts were also able to cheer for the participants in a friendly hockey match.
