In total, 230 young talents passed the test. The weather conditions in the city that day did not allow outdoor events to be held. But the local organizing committee, having at its disposal a sufficiently extensive sports infrastructure, offered appropriate sports facilities in which the children were comfortable to work.

All children received commemorative medals and appropriate certificates of participation in the event, and representatives of educational institutions received sets of equipment and footballs for organizing and conducting training sessions with children.
