On July 10 the sport arena of Kyiv "Olympic stadium" opened its doors for public. 200 little football fans were the first to see the insides of the complex.

The public tour for orphans and children from unfortunate families was held within the Kyiv regional complex program "Toward children". During the tour the little fans had a possibility to see the most interesting Euro showpieces of the sport complex and to be the first to visit Olympic stadium after the Euro-2012 championship.

The tour started from the atrium, situated on the first level of the stadium. As a tour guide informed the visitors, this was the main entrance for football players to the field. From now the hall will be used for presentations, corporate festivals or other events.

The locker room of Dynamo team carried the kids off their feet. They had a chance to touch the uniform of the players and, of course, take some pictures.

The tour guide also told the children that the football players call their locket room a 'holy place', as in this very room the team discusses the tactics and sets its mind for the victory.

The locket room has an under-floor heating to prevent the players from getting cold when they return from the field. There are also a strategy board for the coach, a TV with DVD player to observe their games, massage tables and a washer for boots. Near the locket room there are hot tubs, showers and toilets with vacuumed sanitation system.

After the locket room the children were brought in a room for a flesh-interview, during which the little fans had an opportunity to talk to the players.

After the inner tour the visitors went outside to learn about the equipment and the field itself. Screens on the stadium are 106 sq m in size each - average three-room-apartment. During rainy weather the field is always covered with artificial light to keep the grass green. 640 'umbrellas' on the roof protect the audience from rain and snow, and the cable across the field is in fact a rod lightning.

Obviously, the children were happy with the tour and appreciated the opportunity to see the legendary stadium in person. When saying good-bye to the stadium the little fans sang the song "Chervona Ruta" and even danced 'Nosa' by Michel Telo.
