The strongest teams of the republic will gather in the capital of the Diamond Province
This week the 'Kimberlit' Sports Palace will host futsal battles of the Championship of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). The First League will find the winner of Yakutia in 2019. Championship games will be held February 21-24.
And by the way, the city of Mirny will hold the Championship of Yakutia in futsal after nearly fifteen years. The last republican-scale tournament was held here in 2005 on the opening day of the 'Kimberlit' Sports Palace.
Today it is known that only six teams will take part in the Championship of the First League, instead of eight. So, besides the hosts, in Mirny there will be presented teams of Lensky, Olekma, Aldan districts, as well as Ust-Aldan, Megino-Kangalass uluses.
“The home team consists of employees of ALROSA. There are football coaches, and the driver, mountain rescuers, Almaz-ALROSA Club players, and two students from the Mirny Polytechnic Institute,” the team coach said.
Unfortunately, largely due to lack of funds, the two leading futsal teams of the republic will not be able to participate in the tournament – the team of Neryungri district and last year's winner of the First League, the team of Yakutsk. Thus, these two teams will automatically go down to the Second League and will be able to apply for the Championship only next year.
Well, the medal event among the teams of the Second League will be held exactly in a month - according to preliminary forecasts, the Championship will be held in the capital of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) March 21-24.
