During the meeting, issues of developing physical education and sports and improving sports infrastructure in Dagestan were discussed.
It is reported that in the framework of the project “Sport is the norm of life” in 2019, Dagestan was allocated 50.413 million rubles for the purchase of sports equipment for the creation of small sports grounds. In 2020, the republic was allocated 51.489 million rubles under the project, of which 26.489 million – for equipment for small sports fields, 25 million – for the purchase of equipment for the creation and modernization of fitness centers, open-air complexes or fitness centers with sports halls .
“There are sports bases in Dagestan for various types of martial arts, but as for game sports, they are not so developed. We need a material and technical base, for example, people like hockey in the region, but there are no necessary conditions for practicing this sport. Therefore, I would like to so that in the future we will have an ice palace. Now we are actively working on its design, “said Magomedov.
“Recently, in Makhachkala, with the support of the federal budget, we have already opened three fitness centers. With additional funding, we also want to complete a sports complex with a swimming pool. Dagestan is one of the twenty best regions of our country in terms of the development of mass sports, and we continue to lead intensive work in this direction, “he added.
