A jersey bearing Marek’s name and the number 15 was raised to the rafters of the stadium, to take its place among those of former Metallurg Magnitogorsk stars Ravil Gusmanov, Evgeny Koreshkov, Valery Karpov, Sergei Gomolyako, Andrei Sokolov, Mikhail Borodulin, Sergei Osipov and Viktor Sukhov.

Jan Marek played four seasons for ‘Magnitka’ and was part of the team which was crowned champion of Russia in 2007.
