This opening is a new starting point for Traktor. Chelyabinsk is a hockey city, and it absolutely needs to have a hockey history museum, especially considering the fact that last year Traktor won its first major title in a long time – Continent Cup.
Vladimir Krechin, Traktor CEO:
I would like to congratulate everyone on today’s special occasion. We have been nurturing the idea of this museum for quite a while, and this is only the first step. Next thing we are going to do is to open a hall of team’s XX century history that is going to include the materials that date back to 1947.
