Who knows? Do you follow german-russian bussiness connections nowadays? Believe me, there are german sponsors who would like to invest into KHL´s club.

Btw, one german car producer wanted to sponsor SKA, but KHL rules did not allowed it. You know, KHL´s main partner is Chevrolet, clubs can not promote competitor. That is a problem of KHL, this rule. Of course, not only problem.

If german firm wants to sponsor russian club, why not german´s?
