Kuzbass can become a replacement for foreign venues for Russian athletes.

Sports infrastructure that is being created in Kemerovo region, may be in demand during the training camps of Russian athletes. At the same time, the region needs to create more housing next to this infrastructure for participants of training camps, an aide to the President of the Russian Federation told reporters on FridayIgor Levitin.

In 2022, the Russia — Sports Power Forum will be held in Kemerovo from September 28 to 30. The venues for the event will be the Kuzbass Ice Palace and the Kuzbass Arena sports complex. Igor Levitin assessed the readiness of the infrastructure on Friday.

"On the sports complex ("Kuzbass Arena" — approx. TASS) — there is no such thing in Russia, where it is possible to hold competitions in more than 20 sports under one roof," Levitin said. — Here we just need to think about a hostel for athletes, if they come here for training camps for a month. Today, all our federations are deprived of the opportunity to take training camps abroad and we will need to place them on our squares. We have few sports complexes where an athlete can live and train."

He noted that he was pleased with the readiness of the infrastructure on the eve of the forum, but said that housing, for example, a sports hotel, should be built next to the complex in order to use the site for the training camps of Russian athletes. He advised the Governor of Kuzbass to work out the issue at the forum with the federationsTo Sergey Tsivilev.

As the governor told reporters, the infrastructure for holding new international competitions is being created in the region, now it is planned to build a hotel next to the multifunctional sports complex. "On behalf of the president, we need to organize the international games in a new way," Tsivilev said. — This platform with infrastructure will be the first step towards new international sports games. And the next step is that "Children of Asia" will be held here at the end of February. We are doing these competitions according to the Olympic scenario."

It was planned to hold matches of the 2022 Volleyball World Championship at the Kuzbass Arena, but the tournament was moved to another country.
