Also in 2018 in the Donetsk region the building of playgrounds with artificial surface will continue. Half of the funds are provided by the Football Federation of Ukraine, and the other half - the cities of the region will allocate. Last year, 83 sports playgrounds with artificial surface and 200 sports fields with fitness anti-vandal equipment were already opened.

In addition, the construction of the "Lyodova Arena" and the pool in Kramatorsk will continue.
