"It’s a very exciting race, as usual. I have been to both Astara and Shusha in these competitions." The Minister of Youth and Sports of Azerbaijan, Farid Gayibov, mentioned this in his statement to "Idman.biz" reporter while evaluating the game of "Neftchi" in the Baku stage of the Women’s 3x3 Basketball World Series.
"The basketball federation is very active. For the third time, these competitions are held at a very high level. Two of our teams are participating, both our national team and "Neftchi". "Neftchi" is stronger. And the results are obvious. They have won several times," the minister said.
"Such competitions were held between local teams. It turned out to be quite interesting. The games are held outdoors, in the center of the city, attracting the attention of many people. The rules are very easy. I think that this type of sport will become more popular in our country", said F. Gayibov.
