Football fairy tale. A bus of fans of the famous Bayern came to Křepice for the match

At first they thought someone had fired. Martin Jurčík, the captain of the Křepice footballers who start in the fourth class, was contacted by representatives of the fan club of the current winner of the Champions League. “They called a week before the match. At first, no one wanted to believe it and it was found out which joker is behind it, “Jurčík said with a smile on his lip.

However, the telephone number from which the Bavarian fans responded had a German prefix and called from Munich. “The voice on the other hand said that it was not fun,” Jurčík added.

Forty minutes before the match with the B-manchaft of the Sokol Dyje Physical Education Unit, a bus with a German license plate actually arrived in front of the Křepice playground. “Forty-two fans in the jerseys and scarves of the Bundesliga champion came out of it. It should be noted that they were equipped with the flags of SK Bayern Křepice and all sorts of possible pyrotechnics, “explained the football player Josef Heger on behalf of the Czech cousin.

The 42-year-old fighter, who has been playing for Křepice since the early 1990s, was surprised by the flags with the logo of South Moravian Bayern. “They downloaded our logo on the Internet and had it made by them,” Heger said.

Foreign guests cheered violently. Thanks to that, the Křepičs lost the Dyje reserve 7: 0 high. “It was great. It never occurred to us that someone would come to see the square, let alone from Germany, “Josef Heger sounded astonished.

The newcomers and players sniffed at the atmosphere that can be seen in huge stadiums. “I dare say that the vast majority of players experienced something like this for the first time in their lives. According to him, the guests from Munich were also enthusiastic, “added the player Křepic.

The Bavarian fan club, however, was not the last time in a village in southern Moravia. “He will probably return in two years, when we are celebrating thirty years since the founding of the football team in Křepice,” Heger concluded.

Photo: website of the government of St. Petersburg

In the Slavyanka microdistrict of the Pushkin district of St. Petersburg, the Green Park cultural and leisure center worth 2 billion rubles was commissioned. According to the press service of PSK Group of Companies (project investor), the area of ​​the object was 23.9 thousand square meters. m. Experts interviewed by RBC Petersburg say that, given the shortage of places for leisure in the microdistrict, Green Park may well become a “local” center of attraction, but the time for its commissioning is difficult, given the approach of the second wave of COVID-19.

Filling the areas

The two-storey leisure center is located in the central part of Slavyanka. A parking lot for 650 cars is envisaged on the territory; in the future, a park will be set up nearby. According to the investor, 40% of the commercial space of the complex will be allocated for leisure, social and sports needs. In particular, the first fitness club in Slavyanka with a swimming pool, Fitness House, will appear here. The first large supermarket in the microdistrict, clothing stores, grocery stores, and children’s stores will also open there. At the same time, there will be no traditional food court in the center (instead, there will be separate restaurants and coffee shops).

The official opening of Green Park is scheduled for December 1st. “At the time of commissioning, 80% of the area was commissioned in Green Park. We have every reason to believe that at the time of the opening of the complex there will be 100% filling, which will be a record for such projects, “says Stanislav Stupnikov, head of the retail real estate department of the Best Group of Companies (exclusive broker for the project).

According to the expert, the construction of this facility provided an opportunity to start work in Slavyanka for large federal networks. Prior to that, there were no necessary areas in the microdistrict. Stupnikov recalls that 180 thousand people live in the coverage area of ​​the leisure center. In his opinion, the audience of Green Park is not only residents of Slavyanka, but also of adjacent territories, such as Pushkin and Kolpino.

Lack of places for leisure

Andrei Kosarev, head of Colliers International in St. Petersburg, believes that since the new facility in Slavyanka has no competition, it may well become a center of attraction for residents of its microdistrict. According to the expert, the Pushkinsky district is the least provided with retail space in St. Petersburg (47 sq. M per thousand inhabitants). For comparison, in the Petrodvortsovy district, which is next, the provision is 97 sq. m per thousand inhabitants, and in Vasileostrovsky – 112 sq. m per thousand inhabitants.
