, League's general director, - “It was also necessary to check with the windows of FIBA, the matches of the National teams. Currently there are 14 teams in League, which means there will be more games as well, but we still reserve the opportunity to hold the traditional VTB League Star Match on 16-17 February. The season starts with a exiting game of two top teams «Locomotive-Kuban» and «Zenit”, which will be held on October 5 in Krasnodar. It promises to be a breathtaking show.
