Vityaz will be allowed to move to Podolsk.

Moscow Region government has permitted Vityaz to move to Podolsk.

The reason is changes in the KHL regulations. According to the new rules the clubs playing at 5500-seats and smaller arenas must present projects of a new stadium or reconstruction of the old one. The arena in Chekhov is of 3300 seats, but the stadium in Podolsk seats 5500 spectators, what meets the requirements.

Vityaz President Mikhail Golovkov commented on the decision: 'The region greenlit the Vityaz's removal to Podolsk. We're assessing the situation and working on it.

The removal is possible, but I cannot say surely whether we will play there. What are the chances? More likely yes. We have no equivalent alternatives.'
