Historic derby before the summer

So the countdown has begun. Final preparations have been completed. The veil of secrecy over this football season’s climactic game has been lifted somewhat. A press conference dedicated to the final of the BETCITY Cup in Russia took place in Moscow. It presented a new identity for the main match of the tournament and a technical cadre.

CEO of BETCITY told more about the identity Yuri Nesterov:

“The return of the BETCITY Russian Cup final to Luzhniki after 15 years is a milestone. This is an important step in the development and popularization of not only the tournament, but the entire Russian football.

We couldn’t help but make it colourful, so the identity of the final is bright, emotional, giving additional colors to this long-awaited match.

It reflects the rich cultural heritage of the city and its character. When creating, we are inspired by Moscow, its history and numerous sights that combine modern trends and historical cultural monuments.”

The Moscow “Spartak” became the nominal owner of the field, with the light hand of its technical coordinator. artem rebrov, who drew the winning ball from the draw basket. The former ‘rojiblancos’ goalkeeper pointed out that it was not important for the club to own the field. But, of course, it is good that now “Spartak” has an advantage in the choice of locker room, bench and home kit.

Dynamo was represented by the defender of the football club and the Uruguayan national team Diego Laxalta. Probably, the ‘blue and whites’ should have sent their pupil and captain to the draw Anton Shunin. Perhaps the cards had been placed differently. Although, the Russian Cup BETCITY ambassador, the former mentor of the ‘rojiblancos’ and the multiple champion of Russia Oleg Romantsev, at a press conference, could not help but point out that Luzhniki, where the final will be played, is historically considered Spartak’s stadium, and nothing can be done about it. As if he was implying that the Dynamo draw was in some sense originally a foregone conclusion. But, according to the legendary coach, the teams from the capital will have an equal chance of winning. And the winner will be the one who enters the field that day not for a cash prize, but exclusively for the Cup.

And about the temptation of the economic component of the Cup Oleg Romantsev mentioned not in vain. The main partner of the tournament, the betting company BETCITY, has managed to increase the prize fund of the final 16 times during two seasons of cooperation with the RFU. Thus, the winner of the current Russian BETCITY Cup will receive 40 million rubles, and the runner-up – 10 million.

As for the image component of this match, here, as they say, all the stars came together. First of all, Spartak and Dynamo will play the domestic cup final for the first time in 72 years. The last time these metropolitan clubs met in the final battle for the cup was in 1950. By the way, the first vice-president of the RFU, Nikita Simonyan, played for Spartak, and the game itself was held in the Petrovsky Park and gathered 70,000 spectators! Second, Luzhniki will host the Russian Cup final for the first time in 15 years. And the organizers do not doubt the full house. At a press conference, the Deputy Secretary General of the Russian Football Union (RFU) Erika Surikova noted: “The development of the Russian Cup is one of the priority projects of the RFU in the field of professional football. This season there were 99 clubs from 77 regions. We expect the maximum attendance, we will gather a full house and we will have a real football vacation”. Third, the trophy itself is celebrating its anniversary this year. Thirty years ago, the last USSR Cup final took place. And in the fall of 1992, the first Russian Cup began with a new trophy. By the way, the first owner of the coveted cup in 1993 was the Moscow “Torpedo”. Tickets for the historic Luzhniki derby will go on sale next week. As the organizers pointed out, they tried to take into account the interests of all fans and formed a flexible ticket program.
