UFA, 16 October 2019. /Bashinform News Agency/ translated by Tatiana Aksyutina/.
362-meter-long graffiti dedicated to the Ufa football club is recognized as the largest in Russia. This was reported by the press service of the Bashkir team. According to the head of the official Ufa fan club Ruslan Hakimov, the idea of creating wall drawings appeared in 2015, when the team players returned to the stadium.
“The road leading to the native stadium runs through a private sector closed by gray fences. Naturally, this view does not look like football surroundings, as the Chernikovka neighborhood is. We, with our Ufa team of fans, gradually began to implement a plan to create unique graffiti that would reflect the spirit and philosophy of our team”, explained Ruslan Khakimov.
FC Ufa will hold the next match on the home field of the Neftyanik stadium with CSKA Moscow on Sunday, October 20.
