One stadium. Two teams. Three frames.
Show-business celebrities, such as captain Aleksandr Ljubimov, the theatre and cinema actor Vladislav Shklyaev, the hero of the Russian serial “Youth team” Matvei Zubalevich, actor Denis Matrosov and many others tried to compete against great hockey players like Aleksandr Jakushev and Vladimir Myshkin.
Sport passions ran high.
Diamond had to chill both teams and energize the fans with its crystal-clear cold natural water “Pearl of Elbrus”.

But the fact was that the result of the match and the goals scored were not so important. Much more important were the funds collected to help children. Without any doubts, Friendship won, but for Diamond Holding what was important is that “Life” matters.
