President of the All-Russian Physical Culture and Sports Society “Labor Reserves” Ilya Galaev noted that a change in the political situation in the world could lead to an increase in the number of participants in international corporate games that will be held in Moscow in 2023.
“Changing the political situation in the world can affect the mass character of the event. While waiting for 5 thousand fans. This figure is optimal both taking into account the available sports facilities and the timing. If we understand that the figure is growing, we will take action. We know how many athletes from Russia we can provide. Our friends from Iran have already announced today that they can bring about 500 people to these games. The countries of the former CIS will join. We are negotiating with Turkey and Israel. Serbs will actively participate. The Chinese want, but they still have a complete lockdown. Many countries are ready to interact and cooperate with us. Sport is out of politics,” said Galaev.
The timing of the international corporate games has not yet been determined. It is planned that the event will be held in 18 sports. Representatives from more than 17 countries will come to Moscow in 2023.
Earlier it was reported that the budget of international corporate games will be from 150 million to 300 million rubles.
