Most multipurpose arenas in Germany belong to American companies. Don't know if they really want to do business with Russians. That could be a problem. For example Hamburg Freezers and Eisbären Berlin (and both their big arenas) and also the arena in Cologne belong to Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) (the company also is owner of LA Kings (NHL), LA Galaxy (MLS), Houston Dynamo (MLS) etc. and is owner of Staples Center in Los Angeles etc etc.

But there were rumours that AEG wanted to sell Berlin and Hamburg arenas and clubs in recent years.

PS:

Maybe KHL can get Berlin. They are not very popular in Germany because the club is originally from Eastern Germany and it was the official team of the Stasi (State Security) (official name was SG Dynamo Berlin) + the league is boring with all the titles for Berlin. Not few fans would be happy see them leave.
