Our team is ready to face Parma in the VTB League game.

Pre-game breakdown


The Army Men went to Perm shorthanded. Mikhail Kulagin, Nando De Colo and Cory Higgins stayed in Moscow.

The Ural team won its second major trophy last week by taking the Russian Cup. It should be noted that only Russian players are allowed to participate in the tournament. Our club was represented with CSKA-2.

Word to the coach


Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
We need to bounce back after loss in our last game. Parma is definitely a very motivated team. They are low in the standings but they recently beat UNICS, theyve changed coach, theyve won the Russian Cup with Russian players only, so they have our respect.
