Futsal: "Polytechnic" Is the Best in the League!

The representative team of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute "Polytechnic" headed the list in the Kyiv Futsal Championship (League 2).

27 teams took part in the tournament, which were divided into subgroups. The championship started back in October 2021, but due to the beginning of the full-scale russian military invasion of Ukraine, it was interrupted. The players had to forget about their football roles for a while and plunge into urgent matters dictated by war realities. Some helped volunteers, some took part in charity events and tournaments to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine, others saved their relatives and friends. However, it was precisely such difficult circumstances that helped our boys to rally and show a great game in the final.

In September, the games of the Kyiv Futsal Championship resumed. The representative team of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute went through the final stage of the games unbeaten: five games, five victories, and therefore took premier place among the teams of the 2nd League. Moreover, one of our players, Oleksiy Bolbot, made the top three scorers of the championship.

The team included students of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute: Vlad Kolosov, Oleksiy Bolbot, Danylo Kuzikov, Denys Kuzikov, Artem Ivashchenko, Dmytro Nagornyi, Volodymyr Bohdanov, Vasyl Korolchuk, Ivan Oliynyk, Dmytro Shmalko; graduates of of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute: Yevheniy Telestakov, Anton Felemeniuk, Pavlo Pishta, Dmytro Sushkov, Oleksandr Shapovalov, Ivan Svichkariov, Ugo Ezentuke, and a student of the Polytechnic Lyceum, Volodymyr Borozniuk. Coaches: Serhiy Oleksiyovych Zhuravliov and Vyacheslav Serhiyovych Kryvenda.
