As part of celebration of the 15th anniversary of Zheleznogorsk SCC, the specialists of the Center organized a number of sports events: a sports contest for employees and their family members, a football game with ISS JSC team. CCS also was partner of the qualifying stage of the All-Russian football tournament "Apprentices" among boys born in 2006.
