Chelyabinsk and Traktor thank team Russia

Traktor`s CEO Ivan Senichev on team Russias games in Chelyabinsk and the upcoming 2018 U18 World Championship.

Dear fans!

It is with great pleasure that I recall the games that team Russia played against France in Chelyabinsk. It is for the first time that our city hosted hockey games of international caliber.

On behalf of Traktor, I would like to thank the Ice Hockey Federation of Russia for implementing the idea suggested by Governor of Chelyabinsk Oblast Boris Dubrovski and for giving us the opportunity to host exhibition games on the international level. Many hockey experts have already given their positive evaluation of these two hockey games. Vladislav Tretyak named Chelyabinsk "a hockey country, Dmitri Kurbatov "true hockey town
, and sellout crowds at both games are a testament of that.

These games were a rehearsal before hosting the U18 World Championship. We saw some of the aspects that need to be polished, and we are totally sure that we are going to host the tournament on an elite level!
