Athletes USA are launching in Moscow, Russia. We welcome Peter Lekarev our Russian Director to Team Athletes USA.
Peter for many years has run one of the most successful soccer academies in Russia and now is joining our team to help talented student athletes from Russia have the opportunity to be marketed to some of the best universities in America.
Russia is by far the largest country in the world. The country covers an area all the way from Europe in the West to North America in the East and bordering with Asia in the South, and boasts a vast geography that spans eleven time zones.
Emerging as a diverse nation after a long and eventful history, Russia’s growing and strengthening consumer economy, with a market of over 140 million people, is evolving into a prime location for investment. Business opportunities can be found in many sectors of Russia’s economy and strong support exists for investors from both the government and the Foreign Investment Advisory Council (FIAC).
In 2018 Russia will hold the Fifa world cup. Most games will be played at the Luzhniki Stadium, which is located at the centre of Moscow’s 145-hectare Olympic complex, one of the largest sports complexes in the world. Luzhniki Stadium will be the main venue and the heart of the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ tournament, used for the Opening Match, a semi-final and the Final. The Luzhniki sports complex stretches along the Moscow River and lies opposite the beautiful Vorob’evy Hills Natural Park. The majestic Moscow State University observation area overlooks the stadium.
Athletes USA group Chairman added ” Setting up in Russia has been a mission of ours for sometime. It’s no secret we want to bring Athletes USA to every country in the world, and thats what we are doing. Entering into Russia is one of many new locations we are setting up in 2016.
The key for us was to find the right partner. After meeting Peter and seeing his passion for helping athletes I know we found the right partner for our Russia expansion plans. ”
Athletes USA looks forward to a bright and exciting future with our Russian partners.
