Snow is not a hindrance: why the Loko – CSKA match is worthy of the super prefix

On February 10, the leader of the season, CSKA Moscow, comes to visit Lokomotiv-Kuban. Basketball connoisseurs already know that this will be a match with the prefix "super". And for those who doubt, we will now explain why a real sports holiday is guaranteed in the Basket Hall on Friday.

Loko is playing better and better

The insulting defeat by Pari NN in the last round (80:82) should not overshadow the fact that Lokomotiv Kuban in the second part of the season began to demonstrate basketball of much higher quality than in the fall. Yes, Nizhny Novgorod lost in the end – but first there was an impressive second half in this match, during which Loko confidently turned the course of the meeting in their favor, clearly taking advantage of all the weaknesses in the opponent’s game.

There is no reason to doubt that the head coach of the Krasnodar team, Alexander Sekulich, examined in detail with his wards the causes of the disaster in the last minute of the match with Paris NN – and in the future the team will already know what to do in such situations.

We also recall that a round earlier, Lokomotiv-Kuban did not leave a stone unturned from the second–strongest VTB United League team – UNICS. Red-green defeated Kazan with a record difference “+33” (103:70). It is very interesting to see what Krasnodar will be able to oppose when CSKA, the most productive team of the championship, comes out on the floor against them.

A week ago, the Moscow army seemed to be a team without weaknesses. They score an average of 97 points per match. They include the main basketball star with a Russian passport, Alexey Shved, perhaps the best center on this side of the Atlantic Ocean, Nikola Milutinov, and the jet sniper kid Casper Ware. The Muscovites are coached by Emil Raikovich, a specialist under whose leadership Astana and Avtodor Saratov showed, perhaps, their best basketball in the XXI century. And who has not yet had time to get fed up with awards – under the leadership of Raikovich, CSKA is playing for the first season and physically has not yet managed to take a single title. The coach carefully prepares for each opponent, which resulted in a VTB United League record of 24 consecutive wins.

But a week ago, kryptonite was found on the army supermen – Zenit St. Petersburg beat them, moreover, on the home arena and with a very good margin of safety. Did the first defeat of the championship leader make you angry? Or, on the contrary, knocked out of the rut? We’ll find out tomorrow at the Basket Hall.

В чём точно не приходится сомневаться, так это в том, что матч выдастся очень зрелищным. И «Локо», и ЦСКА регулярно получают большое представительство в еженедельных подборках эффектных игровых эпизодов Единой лиги ВТБ. После матча с «Пари НН» лига отметила две ярких атаки краснодарской команды, а после победы над УНИКСом – сразу три! Так что мы можем смело утверждать, что…

Каждый матч в «Баскет-Холле» – это грандиозное шоу

Когда «Локо» играет дома, одним только баскетболом развлечения для зрителей не ограничиваются. К каждому матчу мы готовим большое шоу и разнообразную развлекательную программу, которая начинается за полтора часа до стартового вбрасывания мяча арбитрами на площадке.

Во-первых, на каждом матче мы разыгрываем множество призов и подарков.

Любой, кто купит в нашем фаншопе фирменных сувениров на 750 рублей и больше, автоматически становится участником призовой акции, победителей которой мы определяем за 20 минут до начала матча. Первый победитель получает право пересесть (вместе с ещё одним человеком на свой выбор) на лучшие зрительские места – в сектор «Паркет». Ещё двое получают подарочные сертификаты от наших партнёров. Главное – не забудьте зайти в свой сектор на трибуны за 20 минут до матча, чтобы не прозевать момент, когда ваш номер вытащат из лотерейного барабана.

Хотя лучше поднимайтесь на трибуны за полчаса до матча, ведь в это время начнётся розыгрыш «Локобет»: всем желающим будет предложено угадать счёт матча. Тот, кто в итоге окажется точнее всех, получит скидку 90% на билеты на следующую домашнюю игру «Локо».

На матч с ЦСКА мы ждём больше зрителей, чем обычно. Поэтому и призов приготовили предостаточно. В большом перерыве матча будет ещё несколько розыгрышей. Для участия в некоторых из них достаточно оставаться на своих местах, но будут и такие, что потребуют вашего активного участия непосредственно на площадке.

Матч будет благотворительным

Кстати, матч «Локо» – ЦСКА руководство краснодарского клуба решило сделать благотворительным. Весь доход от билетов и вся чистая прибыль от продажи атрибутики будет направлена детям, занимающимся баскетболом в Краснодарском крае. В связи с этим в клубных фаншопах будет выставлено несколько совершенно уникальных лотов.

Does Loko have a group of cheerleaders?

We don’t just have cheerleaders. Our Loks Dancers are multiple winners of competitions among sports support groups.

We also have a talisman Toothpick. Once you have talked with our restless and cheerful Zubki, you will never forget him!

As soon as there is a pause in the match, we recommend that you pay attention to the cube-scoreboard above the court – we will turn on an interactive camera, into the lens of which you can easily get!

A lot of spectators are expected at the match with CSKA, so we will roll out our noise meter again – and try to break the record of the season, all together shouting as many decibels as possible.

Should I take my children with me?

We are happy for children and know how to entertain them. For the youngest visitors of the “Basket Hall” we have several platforms:
∙ aquagrim;
∙ children’s playground with animators;
∙ game area with video consoles and board games;
∙ fun starts and art workshops from the “Center of Growth”;
∙ a drawing studio where you can create a poster in support of the team (it often happens that players come to leave their autograph on the most beautiful posters after the match).

So your children will not get a single chance to get bored, even if it turns out to be difficult for them to sit in the stands for four game ten minutes!

But the Basket Hall is so far away…

We do not agree with this. There is no doubt that when the “Basket Hall” was just built, it really was on the very outskirts of the city. But since then, new neighborhoods have grown on all sides of the arena, and the transport infrastructure has improved significantly. Now you can even get to the arena by tram (although you still have to walk half an hour from the terminal).

But, at least, there are plenty of minibuses passing by the “Basket Hall”. And on the days of evening matches (like tomorrow) they go late. Let ‘s list these routes:
∙ No. 29 — CCR — village Spiky
∙ No. 38 — Jubilee MKR — pos . Kalinina
∙ No. 67 — Cooperative market — 9th Tikhaya str.
∙ No.105 — Progress agricultural complex — Sports Village residential complex
∙ No. 106 — Cooperative market — 2nd branch of SKZNIISiV
∙ No. 182A — CCR — pos . Vodnikov
∙ No. 183A — Elizavetinskaya — Berezovy
∙ No. 201 – Cooperative market – village South

It is also convenient to get to us by car, and do not be confused by the snow that has fallen: the main drifts have already cleared everything, and a new blizzard is not expected according to the forecast.

Another thing is that you should set the time for evening traffic jams on Dzerzhinsky Street. But our Parking is spacious – there are enough places for everyone:

By the way, to make it more fun for you to go to the game, our press service will arrange a live broadcast from the playground – it will start at 19:15 and last half an hour. We will tell you about the preparation of Loko for the match, analyze the opponent’s game and answer the questions of our subscribers. The broadcast will be carried out on the club’s Vkontakte page. Questions can be asked in the same place – or in our telegram channel.

Persuaded! Where and how to buy tickets?

Lokomotiv-Kuban is keeping pace with modernity. We have made the procedure of buying tickets as easy as possible – now it can be done literally in three clicks on our website. Visit the “Tickets” section of our website – and see for yourself!

What else do you need to keep in mind when going to a match?

For security reasons, we have no right to let you into the “Basket Hall” with large backpacks and bags – bulky luggage can be left in the luggage room (they will show you where it is, it’s in the basement of the “Basket Hall”).

With bottles and thermoses, too, alas, it is impossible – drinks can be bought in the lobby of the sports complex. Alternatively, you can buy a branded thermocup in our fanshop and walk with it.

Another point of our prohibitions is professional equipment for photo and video shooting. If you really want to report from the arena, contact a press service specialist (+7-962-869-44-75) – we will find a solution that will suit everyone.

What should I do if I have difficulties during the match?

If you can’t find the right sector, missed friends, left your things somewhere – feel free to contact our stewards. These are guys in T-shirts with the words “Staff” and “Ready to help”. They know exactly what to do in any situation.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the match with great impatience – and we try to do everything to make you comfortable and interesting in the arena. In return, we need your fervent support – the native stands have helped Loko win difficult matches more than once. See you on Friday at 20:00 in the “Basket Hall”! Go ahead, Loco!
