Minsk 2019 claim that all sport facilities for this year’s European Games in the Belarusian capital have been completed and are ready.
A total of 12 venues are set to be used during the Games, including the refurbished Dinamo Stadium, which will host the Opening and Closing ceremonies, as well as the athletics events.
“All sports facilities are ready,” Minsk 2019 spokesman Alexei Bogdanovich told a press conference, according to the country’s official state news agency Belarusian Telegraph Agency (BelTA).
“Minsk is a convenient platform for the Second European Games, since major international competitions have already taken place in the capital of Belarus.
“Representatives of the European Olympic Committees were pleasantly surprised that the facilities long before the start of the Games are in a high degree of readiness.”
The Minsk Arena will host the gymnastics and track cycling, the judo and karate will be held at the Chizhovka Arena, while the Sports Palace will hold the wrestling and sambo events.
