It is not the first project for Airports of Regions Group related to the development of table tennis. Horizon Table Tennis Club was established with the support of the Koltsovo Airport in the Sverdlovsk Oblast. The club began its performances in autumn of 2008 and immediately achieved good results. The team took part in the Cup of Russia, and also from the second round it began competition for the European Super Cup ETTU CUP MEN 2008/2009 and continued its performance in the following seasons. Two times the team became the fourth in the Club Championship of Russia among men's teams of the Premier League having conceded only to more eminent contenders. After Koltsovo had joined Airports of Regions Group, the sports tradition gained its traction. After a successful experience in organizing World Tour Russian Open in Ekaterinburg, it was decided to move to another level of table tennis tournaments.

The upcoming European championship will be the largest sports project of Airports of Regions Group. It is expected that more than 500 sportsmen from 50 countries will attend the competition. The championship will be held with the participation of more than 130 international referees.
