“Given the weather during the (…) match with “amkarom”, it is not surprising. But in the previous games, I must admit, we do expect to see higher attendance. Perhaps it is the syndrome of the first season: still not figured out on which sector is better to take a pass, as it is easier to get to the stadium and so on. On the other hand, when compared with the figures of the previous season, when we played in Khimki, attendance has increased two times,” – quoted Babayev on the website of CSKA.
“In any case, our fans still have a great opportunity to get ahead in this competition. In the second round we are waiting for the home matches with “Spartak”, “Zenith”, “Locomotive” and so on. Planned an interesting event, tickets for the matches of the second round will be available at special prices,” said the CEO.
The opening ceremony of the new CSKA stadium in Moscow was held on 10 September before the match of the Russian football Premier League (PFPL) between the army and Grozny “Terek”. The stadium can accommodate 30 thousand spectators. According to the website of the Premier League, this match has been 26420 spectators.
