On Saturday, the long-awaited new football stadium was finally opened in Daugavpils, where the first super match took place – the farewell game of the former Latvian national team defender Aleksandrs Isakovs.
Interestingly, after leaving the big football, Isakov is now the director of the club ” Daugava “, but the club belongs to the millionaire from Russia Igor Malishkov.
This is also the first stadium in Latvia owned by a private person. After all, Mališkov no longer feels like a stranger in our country and several influential people can meet among his friends.
Millionaire Guntis Indriksons, who is now the president of the Latvian Football Federation and the Riga club ” Skonto “, also took part in the opening .
The shareholder of JSC ” Ditton pievadkēžu rūpnīca “, millionaire Vladislavs Drīksne, also a member of the Council of JSC ” Grindeks ” Vitalijs Gavrilovs and the former Prime Minister Valdis Birkavs were also present at the grand opening of the new football stadium .
