Hayastan All-Armenian Fund begins construction of handball stadium in StepanakertWith support from its French affiliate, the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund has started building a handball stadium in Stepanakert. The project is made possible by contributions from French industrialists. The stadium will comprise an 800 square-meter field covered with artificial turf, 102 seats, and locker rooms, and will feature a state-of-the-art lighting system and furnishings. The sports grounds, which can also double as a mini-football field, will serve the close to 3,000 students of nearby schools.
“We eagerly await the completion of the stadium,” said Bedros Terzian, chairman of the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund’s French affiliate, and added, “The French handball team has been a world champion for many years. Who knows, perhaps our young handball players in Artsakh will themselves become tomorrow’s champions.”
In 2014, likewise through the sponsorship of French industrialists, the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund built a mini-football stadium in Chartar, a town in Artsakh’s Martuni Region, where the Chartar football collective, one of Artsakh’s best teams, is trained. Chartar’s kindergarten, too, is a gift from French benefactors.
