I am so happy to be here, at such a special moment for Romanian sport and the sport of Constanta! Launching the Constanta Municipal Sports Club into official competitions is very important for society and athletes alike. Constanta was one of the few major cities in the country that did not have such a goal.

However, this city has given Romania many heroes and can now continue this tradition. I am sure that all Romanian sports will only benefit.

“We want to get children as close as possible to sports”

It would be a great thing first and foremost for the local community. I hope and am sure that you will attract a lot of people to this sport, because it should be a major focus. I guarantee you that I personally, as well as the Ministry of Sports, are working towards this. We want to get children as close as possible to sports, to love and play sports. Let’s bring people from the business and management environment together with athletes and athletes.

This is why I created Project Hercules and why I gave the ministerial order that 40% of the athletes on the field must be Romanian. This is why we launched the National Sports Strategy. The purpose of the minister is the struggle for sport and the development of athletes.

With the budget increased this year by almost 40 percent, we have been able to give more power to the sport and our athletes.” Sports Minister said.

Constanta returns to the national sporting elite

One of the most important topics discussed during the event was the infrastructure that Constanta will develop. The Mayor of Constanta, Virgil ižek, said:

“The city of Constanta has awarded Romanian athletes and their glories in many branches of sports, from football to tennis, from handball to gymnastics. The names of the great athletes who made their huge careers in the world come to our lips effortlessly. Through large infrastructure projects, such as CSM The Polyvalent Hall and the new stadium, Constanța returns to where it has always belonged – in the national sporting elite. We are waiting for you to return to Constanta for the finals of the major competitions, to accompany and watch the growth of the performance of our athletes, to live with us the unparalleled and indescribable joy of our favorite victories.

So I am glad to be here today and to be able to share my development ideas with you.

But I am very happy for all the athletes, coaches and all the people involved in the sporting activities of the city of Constanta.” Male mayor.

“Sports is a form of independent education”

The Deputy Mayor of Constana, Yonoi Russo, expressed great admiration for the CSM Constanța project, which he considers one of the most important social initiatives of the past 30 years, and appealed for the support of the local community:

“The CSM project represents the most important social development of the last 30 years which will be achieved with your help, with the help of our great heroes and with the support of all the residents of Constanta. We are one team, Constanta.

We must wisely admit that the premise from which we start is that sport is a form of education in itself and must be treated as such. Without education no society can progress,Constana Deputy Mayor Yunoi Russo said.

The Director of CSM Constanța, Andrei Talpi, also spoke at the event and expressed his satisfaction with the realization of such a project, noting that it is an essential project for the city of Constana. He also emphasized the objectives of the CSM, which focus on attracting young people to sports, creating the best possible climate for athletes and performance, but also participating with the support of the authorities in infrastructure investments.

Also speaking at the event were Elle Floroyo and Elena Franco, two symbolic and representative names of Constanta who have been involved in local sports and have contributed to its development for decades.

CSM Constanța has officially made its debut in the new men’s handball, gymnastics or table tennis season, and other sports disciplines will also make their debuts in the new season.

During the club identity launch event, some of the equipment with which the athletes will represent CSM Constanța were presented as well as the visual identity, with the sea, the Genovese lighthouse or the sun in the shape of a ball as part of the identity symbolism. Furthermore, the representative colors for CSM will be white, blue, and gold.
