The main Russian gaming sports, which have recently experienced a series of painful defeats, are waiting for reforms in the near future. They were commissioned by the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Chernyshenko, who oversees the sports industry, who considers the results of the country’s football, hockey and basketball teams in 2021 “unsatisfactory and not corresponding to the volume of state investments”.By mid-July, the Ministry of Sports of the Russian Federation and sports federations must submit ” proposals for the development of the sports management system, including personnel and management decisions.” This is stated in the statement of the Ministry of Sports following the results of the meeting held on Friday. It was held by the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Chernyshenko, who oversees the sports industry. The event was attended by Sports Minister Oleg Matytsin, representatives of the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation, as well as heads of sports federations and professional leagues in gaming sports, including the Russian Football Union and the Russian Ice Hockey Federation.Dmitry Chernyshenko at the meeting drew attention to the three results shown by the Russian national teams in the most notable game sports. This is the defeat of the hockey team in the quarterfinals of the World Cup from poorly equipped Canadians, the failure of football players at the European Championship, as well as the disaster of basketball players in the qualifying tournament before the Olympics in Tokyo with a loss to low-priced Mexicans. “These are not the results that the taxpayers and the government demand from us,” Mr. Chernyshenko said.He called the results “unsatisfactory and not corresponding to the volume of state investments” and recalled that during a direct line, Russian President Vladimir Putin “said about the need to make personnel and management decisions in the sports industry.” “The dominance of legionnaires, the overheated market for athletes’ salaries, opaque selection criteria — all these problems require urgent action, ” Dmitry Chernyshenko stressed.According to Oleg Matytsin, “the management system, relations between the state and public organizations “require” a deep analysis”. “We need to develop common approaches and principles for the development of game sports in Russia. There should be a clear understanding of the role and responsibility of the state and public organizations, ” he stressed. In addition, Oleg Matytsin said that it is necessary to analyze the issues of the limit of foreign players and the salary ceiling in various sports. Currently, the ceiling is valid only in the Kontinental Hockey League.Following the meeting, Dmitry Chernyshenko gave a number of instructions. Arnold Kabanov
