And then the entertainment for children began. There was a photo shoot with a club symbol with a white bear, and a quiz on knowledge of rules and terms of football, and a cheerful warm-up for the debut performance of the song about the fun bear. And the children from the dance group "Firebird", which is led by Irina Gutnik, performed excellently.
And traditionally, the children simply with a crazy joy met a kind of rain from balloons, which "spilled" from under the ceiling on the football field. And also, traditionally, young footballers gave their legs and "all the goodies" tricked up all those balloons.
