Finalized dates? Probably not for a month or so and even then it'll probably only be the October fixtures. We should know the order of the opponents by mid-August as well (so you can at least start to plan away trips). Note: ECC match windows run Thur-Sun so if you're booking anything early you'll need to take that into account.

I contacted them yesterday and was told early August for the first 4 rounds with confirmed dates and kick off times, as usual the last 2 rounds will only be announced after rounds 3 and 4 are complete.
Only going to go to the Paris away game so hope that is not the first round as have to go to a wedding on 14th

The little bit of research I've done shows a return trip to Krasnoyarsk is going to cost a little over £500 return, involves changing planes at Moscow and will take around 12 hours. Add another £200 for a hotel. Plus a sensible sum for quality thermal undies.

I think I'll give it a miss, unless the club are going to charter a plane to get the squad there (possibly a cost effective option) and offer the spare seats to supporters.

Can't imagine the club want the squad doing lots of changes, wonder if there will be a chance of a charter and spare seats purchasable - maybe I'm in dreamland

Might work....When CityJet were sponsors they used to offer a few seats on the team flight.

Any one pledging to go to Siberia come hell or high water? Surely it has the makings of legendary overseas escapades. The main tourist attraction apprarenty is an electric power dam

Even if possible wouldn't go to Russia under Putin - invaded the Ukraine and helped to shoot down an airliner. Not for me thanks

This is a typical Western propaganda. The plane was shot down by the Kiev Natzis. On that day, Putin flew from Warsaw to Russia on his white IL-96. They're the idiots who mixed it up with the white Boeing. And Crimea voluntarily joined Russia after a peaceful referendum. It's logical, there's an absolute majority are Russian people. Crimea can be compared with Northern Ireland, only diff in the Crimea Russians 90%, in Nothern Ireland 50\50 Irish\Britans.

Did we discuss apartheid when rugby was played against South Africa?

It's a personal opinion but the Pro PutinRussian garbage spouted makes me sick

We also have many questions about Anglo-Saxon politics. Therefore, it is better to play in rugby, but not in "tank biathlon".
Today Krasny Yar defeated Slava Moscow 76-0. The fans are already waiting for the Challenge Cup in Krasnoyarsk, because there is almost no competition in the Russian championship. Enisei and Krasny Yar, Kuban and VVA only can compete.

Welcome aboard. Do you think many of your fellows will come to the UK for the game?

Are there any rugby supporters among the London Russian community?

Steve, it's very expensive to fly from Siberia to London. And after the fall of the ruble in 2 times in 2014, it became even 2 times more expensive. By the way, for foreigners it's the other way around, it's 2 times cheaper to fly to Russia.

I see the only option if the club invites a few fans to join the plane.
As for the Russian community in London, it is mostly oligarchs and former officials who stole a lot of money in Russia and fled justice to London. They are mostly from Moscow. I doubt that one of them will be rooting for the rugby team from Siberia. For them, more like support Chelsea Abramovich.
