Today, the president of FK Vojvodina Dragoljub Samardžić and the director of the Youth Academy Ilija Pantelić Duško Grujić held a video conference with the delegation of Nizhny Novgorod, the twin city of Novi Sad, on the topic of cooperation between the two cities in the field of football.
On behalf of the delegation of Nizhny Novgorod, the video conference was attended by the advisor for sports of the governor of the Nizhny Novgorod region Jefremov Artyom Arkadjevic, the representative of the base for athletes Emerald Ekaterina Savenkova, the deputy director of the Center for sports training of the Nizhny Novgorod region Zvezdin Yuri Vladimirov, and an interregional cooperation of the public relations department of the City Administration of Nizhny Novgorod Kondratjeva Marija Igorjevna.
On that occasion, it was agreed that the regional center for training football players of FC Nizhny Novgorod will host a team of boys from the Youth Academy Ilija Pantelić born in 2007 or 2009 in the base Izumrudnoje, which has the best possible infrastructure for football. Also, the plan is to participate in the tournament by playing two or three friendly matches, as well as trips to Gorodets and Nizhny Novgorod, and all that remains is to define the exact dates of this visit. The host would provide accommodation and food for everyone from FK Vojvodina, so Vojvodina would only have to cover airfare.
At the same time, the two sides discussed the possibility of holding a coaching seminar and a master class organized by FC Nizhny Novgorod. At the end of the video conference, the president of FK Vojvodina Dragoljub Samardžić expressed satisfaction with the fact that the fifteen-year cooperation between Novi Sad and Nizhny Novgorod is expanding into the field of sports, and expressed the expectation that this cooperation will be even more concrete and meaningful in the future.
