About the All-Star Game in St. Petersburg

“Why did you choose Saint Petersburg? We communicated with many cities, there are stadiums there, but in Omsk there was a change of leadership, so they were probably not in the mood for that. We need to carefully prepare for the All-Star Game, so we decided to stop in St. Petersburg.

When the All-Star Game is organized, which is one of the most fun events of the KHL season, there must be interest from the host side. This year, not everyone was willing to accept this format.”

About the Fedotov case

“Could we lose foreign clubs because of the IIHF’s position in the Fedotov case? I’m not talking about conversations. We have official information. Unfortunately I couldn’t meet with the Barys management, we spoke with Skabelka, he also had some questions, but why discuss something when there is no official decision?

“We do not reject cooperation and respect for the IIHF transfer policy, but we believe that the decision to disqualify Fedotov was unfair to the player.”

About the absence of debts in the new season and the salary cap

“We enter the new season without debt. The number of days of late payment of salaries also decreased. There is a positive dynamic in this regard, which makes us happy.

All clubs have met the minimum wage and salary requirements. If last season they took the field at the end of December, now the clubs must have 85% of the contracts to play the field. This figure should increase to 90% in the near future. The number of clubs that have not yet reached the field has also been reduced from 10 to four. We will be counting at the end of December.”

On whether it is possible to introduce Fan ID in the KHL

“Once again, these are all words. This may be considered in different sports, but currently only applies to soccer. We met with the Ministry of Sports about this, our audience is completely different. Everything we do is aimed at attracting young audiences and families to hockey and creating family vacations. We have a different situation, we have a strategy.

We inform you that these are colossal costs for our clubs, many clubs do not have any patios. We are ready for dialogue, but at the moment you see that the audience is increasing, people are going to hockey. The services work without problems, two safety seminars were held with the services of all the clubs. “We are doing a great job, we do not have excesses to reinforce the safety of the fans in the stands.”

About relations with Tardif

“Am I contacting Tardif now? We used to communicate with him when he came to Moscow for a hockey forum. We went to dinner together and talked about the development of hockey in the world. But all official communication with the IIHF goes through the FHR.”

On the possibility of holding outdoor matches in Mongolia

“They say that Spartak will play two home games in Tashkent this season? Perhaps this topic is being studied, but there is no official information or details.

Elimination matches in Mongolia? We are in contact with the country’s Ministry of Sports. Consider the fact that it is very far away. It is necessary to prepare the sand to comply with technical regulations. It’s hard. An exhibition game could be held in April between the teams that did not qualify for the playoffs.”
