Today, we are celebrating the opening of this wonderful stadium, which was the dream of countless football fans, Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia stated during his speech at the opening ceremony of the Batumi Central Stadium.

According to the head of the government, this stadium was supposed to have been opened in a completely different, much more festive environment with full grandstands but unfortunately, this could not be done because of the pandemic.

"Today, the dream of many football fans came true. Today, we are celebrating the opening of this wonderful stadium, which was the dream of countless football fans. Most importantly, despite the time of the pandemic, which is full of difficult challenges, we are building and opening new stadiums, new maritime academies, we continue to build natural gas infrastructure, we build roads, and all this is done for our citizens. All this is what we call adaptation and what we call accountability to our citizens and we must continue to do so. As you know, this stadium was supposed to have been opened in a completely different, much more festive environment with full grandstands but unfortunately, given our situation and the era of COVID, this could not be done. However, we can see and feel that our athletes already need this stadium to be ready. Of course, we must give them the opportunity to train here, to develop their professionalism, and to bring even greater victories to our country. Therefore, we must all agree that in better times, we will organize a grand celebration here, the celebration of great victories," Giorgi Gakharia stated.

According to the Prime Minister, the stadium was built with Khorumi accents.

"Of course, I am certain that for each of our football players, for Dinamo Batumi, for every team that will play on this field, the Khorumi will be a source of inspiration for further victory. In addition, the Khorumi is a symbol of the Georgian fighting spirit and I want you to know that we will all fight together for our future with the melodies of the Khorumi, we will win in all directions, we will defeat the COVID, the epidemic, and the economic crisis, we will hold the elections and we will all celebrate the victory of our football players together, with full grandstands. Congratulations on the opening of this stadium. I wish you great victories," the Prime Minister stated.
