Dynamo Moscow, will be based at the Ice Palace from the start of the coming season. The arena will stage two pre-season tournaments, including the tradition Mayor of Moscow Cup, before the KHL campaign gets underway on 24th August.

question: so it is more or less already officially (accepted) by KHL?
which is great, as i just booked my moscow trip mid september when slovan bratislava plays there, so we will sit in this 12,000 arena

CSKA still plans to build arena. Right now they have land and are in prep/project stage.

Spartak will play in Luzhniki this season. In early 2016, Megasport will open again, and they've talked about moving there in the season 2016-17. Sokolniki arena was denied by KHL, because it's too small and too old.

VTB Ice Palace is a home for Dynamo Moscow for season 2015-2016. The first pre-season tournament there will start at August 6th. Dynamo - Slovan game will indeed be played there.

Hm - how come that Megasport was not used during the regular season by any other team? That is what irks me, why play there at all if the arena was never used as a home base for any team?

Also... So suppose Spartak goes to Megasport... Dynamo to its new home which will be part of that bigger socccer complex... and CSKA goes off to its future home one day. What then happens to the Legends arena? Nothing? Surely it won't turn into a basketball only arena... I dunno, it just seems like a waste to have that many huge arenas...

And then what about the second part of the question - regarding this excess of big arenas? I really hope it is not a plan to put a fourth team in Moscow... (in the past at least there seemed to be this crazyness of putting as many teams in Moscow as possible...)

Moscow is a big city. They will figure something out. There is no excess of big arenas.

Barys Arena should be ready in time for the new season. But in case if it doesn't, they are preparing the rink in the old arena.

Barys Arena right now looks like this.



Spartak will play in Luzhniki (8200 seats). Megasport (14500 seats for hockey) is unavailable till early 2016. It's closed right now.

To me it looked like the second level seats were not close to being done, and furthermore there are still lots of technical and whatnot things that need to be done outside...

Call me stupid, but I thought that there was more work to be done on this! Nice news.

I wonder if this will result in motivation for additional new arenas for teams in the eastern conference of the KHL...

Huh? Most of Eastern Conference arenas are relatively recent as it is, Sibir is pretty much the only team that could be even thinking about the new one. Yekaterinburg could probably think about one too but it would have little to do with Auto I guess since they have trouble filling their 4,7k arena as it is.

Now that Dynamo Moscow and Barys Astana are moving into their brand new arenas this season. Which KHL teams are going to upgrade their arenas?
I heard Spartak will be moving into the newly renovated Megasport for 2016-17 season but i do not know if that is confirmed.
CSKA Moscow, Torpedo, Severstal and Vitayz are teams that need to upgrade their facilties.

Yekaterinburg and Metallurg Novokuznetsk also play in old arenas.

Look at the list of arenas... there are a number which are small and not so good.

Lets not forget, they are low in terms of size as well. I think that it's so sad to see Vladivostok and Lada with such small ones, for example.

Is that picture from a pre-season game?
