Today negotiations about the organization of the exhibition game CSKA – Utah Jazz in Moscow were finished today in the office of the army club. CEO of PBC CSKA Sergey Kushchenko has comment the result of the meeting:

- Negotiations with NBA management last several hours, but they were very productive. We could discuss many questions. We determined the date and the place of the carrying of the game – October, 8 in Sport Hall Luzhniki.

First we wanted to play in SK Olympiysky, but unfortunately this day it is busy for another measure. It is very good, that NBA representatives could visit the game between CSKA and Olympiacos. They appreciated the organization of it at its true value and understood our abilities. NBA was interested about all details of the duration of Utah in Moscow: hotel, transportation, guarding, insurance, souvenir production, mobile contact etc. Unlike other similar games NBA will entrust CSKA many organization questions. Commissioner of NBA David Stern is interesting about this game and he can visit it.

The format of the game was discussed too. We decided, that we will play on the mixed regulations. Teams will play 4 quarters (12 minutes every). The limit of the fouls is 6. 3-points line will be situated between FIBA and NBA standards. Time-out will last 1 minute and 40 seconds.
