The agreement, inked at the Hypercube on Friday by Skolkovo Foundation president Victor Vekselberg and Olympic committee president Alexander Zhukov, sets out a road map for the planning and construction of the center, which is to open the same year as Russia hosts football’s World Cup.
"I think that after the spectacular victory of the Russian team at the Winter Games in Sochi a year ago, we see huge, huge sporting potential in Russia today," said Vekselberg in opening remarks.
