The League agreed to schedule the December 22 regular-season game between SKA St. Petersburg and CSKA Moscow at the Stadium St. Petersburg.
The next round of the Army derby will be staged at a unique venue: The Stadium St. Petersburg, one of the best sports arenas in Russia. In his brief life, the Stadium hosted important competitions such as the football Confederation Cup and FIFA World Cup. Moreover, the Stadium is the home ground of the local football club, Zenit St. Petersburg.
This true hockey party will also be a great chance to celebrate the 72nd anniversary of the first USSR Hockey Championship season. Both Army clubs are amongst the Championship’s early members.
The League agreed on the organization of this unique game only if compliant with all the requirements of the regulations.
