Eugene Kuyvashev, governor of the Sverdlovsk region, met with Alexander Levin, the newly elected chairman of the Ural football club board, to discuss the future of the club on Monday.
Kuyvashev told Levin that both he and the community support the FC Ural Sverdlovsk Oblast club, which trains in Yekaterinburg.
“... The task is not only to maintain the pace of development of the professional club Ural, but also to develop the capacity to actively engage in training new personnel, to produce in the lives of young players,” the governor said.
Levin, who replaced Denis Pasler as the club's chairman, is encouraged by the community’s support, especially following the club's 2-0 win against Spartavus on Sunday.
"Thank you very much for your confidence," he said. "You put the right things in front of the club's management - to preserve the traditions of the Ural football. ... Yesterday's victory over Spartacus inspired confidence in us. With regard to the organizational plans, it certainly is to maintain financial stability. We are confident that with the support of sponsors and your government of the Sverdlovsk region we will succeed."
