Despite the numerous destructions suffered by the settlement in the Kyiv region since the beginning of the large-scale Russian military invasion, football classes with the support of the department of culture, youth and sports of the Gostomel settlement council resumed already in mid-May. And currently, under the leadership of coach Serhiy Ivankiv, 68 students of different age categories are engaged in the sports section. The coach of young football players himself is from Donetsk, but after the temporary occupation of his hometown by the Russians in 2014, he was forced to move to Kyiv region.

Among the young football players was the 11-year-old captain of Hostomel "Fenix" Vlad. Vlad is a talented midfielder, whose idol is the winger of the Ukrainian national team Andriy Yarmolenko. The first visit in his life to the House of Football and the meeting with the legends of this game made a vivid impression on the young football player and his friends. And especially — a museum with numerous trophies, which reminds of the glorious history of Ukrainian football.
