Economy will be the biggest hurdle, but Stavanger is probably the only city in Norway that could pull this off. Sponsoring a KHL team could be of intrest for some of the Oil comanies that operate out of Stavanger. For example Statoil that are doing buisness in Russia and has its headquarters in Stavanger.

And DNB Arena holds 4750 people.
