On Thursday, April 7, just two days before the start of the Russian Cup in Krasnodar the Women`s Handball Club ?CSKA” visited DeloPorts (part of Delo Group) terminals. Men`s and women`s ?CSKA” Clubs are closely associated with the Group, which is the general sponsor of not only these Clubs, but also of Handball Club ?Kuban”, so employees of the Group are devoted handball fans.
The team came to Krasnodar region to participate in OLIMPBET Final4 of the Russian Women's Handball Cup – 2021-2022. The Cup will be held in Krasnodar on April 9-10. The best teams of Russian Cup - ?CSKA”, ?Rostov-Don”, ?Kuban” and ?Zvezda” will take part in the competition.
After arrival in Novorossiysk, the athletes laid flowers at the monument ?Port workers of Novorossiysk”, built on the initiative of the Delo Group. Afterwards, the team went on a tour of the DeloPorts holding terminals and talked with their employees.
The sportswomen got a chance to get acquainted with the facilities and see how the containers and grain are handled at the terminals. The CEO of DeloPorts Igor Yakovenko told the team about how the holding had become a leader in the market, about investment projects which the Group had implemented in last 7 years: construction of unique deep-water container and grain berths for ocean-type vessels, purchase of own modern tugboats that are an important part of the uninterrupted work of terminals.
Igor Yakovenko, in a dialogue with the handball players, noted: ?These days DeloPorts is one of the most advanced divisions of the Group and the most advanced in southern Russia. The second place we are no longer interested in, because if we fight, we fight till the end - as well as you. Handball plays an important role in our corporate culture, and we are really happy to support ?CSKA” and thereby contribute to the development of sports in Russia.
On April 9-10 in the Cup of Russia I wish you exactly this - to fight to the bitter end, and we, DeloPorts, NUTEP, KSK, SC Delo employees will go to Krasnodar to cheer for you”.
For two members of the team, the visit to the terminals was not the first. Olympic champions of Rio 2016 Yekaterina Ilyina and Olga Akopyan by the sea tradition earlier became godmothers of two tugboats of ?Delovoy-3” and ?Delovoy-4” Service Company respectively.
After this tour the ?CSKA” team captain Daria Dmitrieva addressed to the employees and shared her impressions of her visit to the terminals: ?It was very interesting for us to visit your city. The city where the Group was founded, and to see how DeloPorts terminals work. We have a high regard for the profession of port workers and we are very thankful for the opportunity to perform at one of the best clubs in the country that your work gives us. Thank you for rooting for us. We, the meantime, will try to live up to your trust and strive to always be first as you do”.
