Tomorrow a preliminary round of both Conferences will begin.
Our hometown team will do the Eastern Conference in the new Yenisey Arena and will face the hosting team from Krasnoyarsk, Uralskiy Trubnik, Baikal-Energia, Kuzbass, Sibselmash and the Russian Junior National Bandy Team, that won't qualify to advance to the play-offs, but will have a good opportunity to compete with the cream of the crop in Russian bandy.
Two best teams from the Eastern Conference will advance to the Cup finals, where they will be joined by two top squads from the Western one. The venue for the Finals is yet to be determined. The teams from the West will be competing in Ulyanovsk within the same time framework.
