At the panel discussion organized by Ernst&Young and titled Sports Facilities as Innovative City Development Driver, Andrei Peregoudov paid special attention to the culture of supporting your team. He expressed hope that that the efforts of the VTB Arena Park project will help to recreate a community of sport enthusiasts in the Dynamo district. “Under the support of mass sports and building of local home arenas, Russia is witnessing the birth of a unique culture – “the culture of supporting your team”. Supporting the team of your neighborhood, school, and university. It is also important for building a loyal and friendly city environment. There is an expression in English “neighborhood community” that cannot be accurately translated into Russian. But it is exactly what we want to create around the Dynamo stadium – we want this old Moscow district to have a community of people who take care of their health and their families, who love each other. Such people will be the main visitors of their homey and cozy stadium as it has always been.”

The topics of different sports authorities’ consolidation, sports media market development, initiation of unique near-sports events and activities as well as synergy of commercial and sports brands provoked the most vivid interest among the presidium members and the auditory.
BASKETBAL ON THE FOUM GROUND
During all days of the Forum, the VTB Arena interactive stand was extremely popular; the exhibition stand was designed as a mini-basketball court with real spectator seats, two interactive basketball units and decorated with a commemorative ball autographed by the Euroleague President Jordi Bertomeu and great basketball players Sergio Llull, Viktor Khryapa and Vassilis Spanoulis.
The guests of SPIEF had a change to practice the accuracy of their shots supported by a professional trainer and to learn about the VTB Arena Park project in more detail.
The celebrities also could not leave basketball without their attention: the State Duma Deputy and a tree times Olympic champion in Greco-Roman wrestling Alexander Karelin, Prince Georgy Romanov, the descendant of the Romanov royal family, the Russian fashion model, the ambassador of the FIFA 2018 World Cup and the founder of the Naked Heart Foundation Natalia Vodianova, Honored Master of Sports and the Olympic silver medalist Ilya Averbukh, the star of the Russian football Alexey Smertin, and many others. Not all of them could score the basket at the first time. However, Natalia Vodianova had easily managed to make a three-score shot and was excited to try on the historical Dynamo uniform.
Over 300 people participate in the improvised basket-battles. At least 1000 shots could go through the basket; the guests had to compensate their missed shots with squats (at least 1500 in total) and pushups (at least 1700 in total). So, the VTB Arena stand had made a sufficient contribution into the health of the Forum participants.

According to Director of Roscongress Foundation Alexander Stuglev, “VTB Arena Park is a unique venue for various major events in the sphere of business, politics and sports.”
The same symbolic effect was also created by the principal agreement between CJSC “MC “Dynamo” and Eventica, an international strategic communication agency officially certified by the Russia -2018 Organizing Committee for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The agreement was signed by Andrei Peregoudev and Sergey Kolyshev, the founder of Eventica.
