Kometa Brno’s youth teams received new reinforcement before the start of the 2021/2022 season. This comes from the investment company DRFG, which has been cooperating with the club since 2015 and is also the main partner of the A-team. The education of youth hockey players under Špilberk Castle has thus been given a strong pillar that will help its further successful development. Just like for Kometa, investments in the future are also important for DRFG.
Systematic work with youth is one of the main priorities for Kometa Brno. The club has won the Best Academy of Czech Hockey award twice in recent years, is a traditional source of national team members, regularly incorporates its own charges into the A-team and even trains players for the NHL. In the last seven drafts, the teams of this famous competition have selected ten talented youngsters from Kometa. This is by far the largest number of all clubs in the Czech Republic. Thanks to the support of DRFG, Brno’s youth hockey can now develop further.
„We very much appreciate the fact that the DRFG investment group will now focus its attention on the youth of Kometa. In the long term, we try to create such conditions that the work with young hockey players in our club is at the top level. I believe that the results of our work are visible. We still want to raise proud Kometa team players who represent the future for us“, said Libor Zábranský, owner of Kometa.
