The telegram reads, in part:
“Today, we can say with certainty that the Night League has achieved its main goal: it has gained enormous popularity, becoming one of the most successful popular projects in Russian amateur sports. It unites tens of thousands of hockey fans through its bright initiatives, ideas and projects, making a serious contribution to the development of physical culture and promoting the values of a healthy lifestyle.
It is symbolic that the League is holding its third festival in Sochi. This city has excellent conditions for holding such large-scale, interesting athletic events. But most importantly, both participants and fans will be able to feel the special, unique atmosphere of this wonderful, hospitable city which just recently hosted the XXII Olympic Winter Games.”
