Despite the challenging weather conditions, the new full-size football dome with an artificial turf has been installed in Rēzekne, Latvia. Air dome assembly preparations took place for almost a week - clearing the snow and stretching the membrane around the entire perimeter of the foundation.
Winters in Latvia are harsh and due to lack of indoor football facilities, the players simply did not have optimal training conditions (for example, training was held in facilities built for other sports). To overcome the winter period and to promote footballers to improve their skills year-round, the Latvian Football Federation (LFF) has decided to invest into new, modern indoor football facilities.
According to LFF development program for 2021 - 2024, seven new football domes will be built in different Latvian cities. In the following months one more football dome will be built in Liepāja.
