Belarus Premier gives indications to timely complete construction of facilities for European Games 2019

The facilities, which will be involved in the European Games 2019 in Minsk, must be finished in time: no later than the end of 2018.

On September 6, 2017 the Prime Minister of Belarus visited several building sites. It is known that the participants of the sports forum will stay in the Students’ village. The largest hostel is being built here. As many as 1,800 people will be able to live in a 25 store building. Indications have been given to finish building the hostel by the end of 2018. Attention was paid to the building of the scientific-practical center at the junction of Timiryazeva and Narochanskaya streets. It will be finished by September 1, 2018. A medical center and scientific laboratories will be there.

Alexander Shamko, Minister of Sport and Tourism of the Republic of Belarus:
The complex has been united. The scientific and medical blocks were separate. Today they were joined into one block, and the functions of it are a bit different now: the Republican Scientific and Practical Centre of Sports. All the medical tests and scientific tests will be carried out in one building. It will be convenient for the sportsmen: if before they had to do medical tests in one place, scientific tests in other places, everything will be done in one place now.

As many as ten Minsk facilities will be hosting the competitions.

Part of the facilities are ready for the European Games, other facilities need preparation works to be done in them. There are facilities which are still to be finished built. It is planned that training sessions of different kinds of sports will be held here. Active work is being carried out at all the facilities, including harmonization of standards and technical features with international sports organizations.
