Kazan hosted a volleyball tournament among student teams. Two teams from Turkmenistan won prizes at once. The student team "Magtymguly Pyragy" won the tournament and the team "Ashgabat 140" won third place.
The games were held in a round robin system. Eight teams from Kazan Federal University (KFU) took part in the competition. The winners received cups, diplomas, medals and memorable prizes.
It is noteworthy that the original names of the teams from Turkmenistan were given in honor of significant dates: The 300th anniversary of the famous poet Makhtumkuli and the 140th anniversary of the founding of the capital of Turkmenistan.
The official partner of Magtymguly Pyragy and Ashgabat 140 is the Consulate General of Turkmenistan in Kazan. The players receive assistance from the diplomatic mission in the form of organizing grounds for regular training sessions. The Consulate General also ensures the purchase of the necessary equipment and sports uniforms with national symbols.
