I am sure that in February 2014, we were all very proud”, – said President of the ROC.

I suppose this has become the greatest legacy of our Games along with the modern infrastructure of Sochi and new modern sports facilities”.
In 2014, the ROC was recognized as the most successful National Olympic Committee of the year, and our project called the House of Fans of the Russian Team in Sochi received numerous prizes and awards, including international ones. But, of course, we’re not going to stop there and in 2015 we will launch new ambitious programs and projects”.

In accordance with this strategy the ROC has plans to work even more closely with its partners both on the existing and on the new projects and programs.
Head of the Event marketing of the ROC Yulia Dogadina told guests about the projects and programs, such as Russian Olympic Day, Day of Winter Sports, Olympic Ball, Olympic Patrol, Olympic Changes, Olympic Legend, Sport for All, etc.
Oleg Rumyantsev, Head of Council of assistance of the ROC shared plans to build the House of the Fans of the Russian Team at the Games of the XXXI Olympiad in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro. The main objective of this project is to provide our team with maximum fans support at the Games. In order to achieve this objective we will have to help them plan and organize their trip to the Games and make the House of the Fans in Rio their second home. According to Oleg Rumyantsev, fans will be able to go to competitions together or to stay in the House to watch the live broadcast together and root for our team. The House will become a place where fans will meet and communicate face-to-face both with current athletes and coaches and with veterans of sport. It will also be the main venue for celebrating Russian winners of the 2016 Games.
