Ekaterinburg before the weekend was not only the capital of the Sverdlovsk region, but also the Russian basketball capital. The main conference on the development of the country’s basketball industry opened here.
“Expobasket” is two days of panel discussions and reports, more than fifty speakers and 300 leading experts. And also Lokomotiv-Kuban with the Lokobasket-School League project.
Andrei Pakhutko, the director of the championship, spoke about the 16-year experience of holding one of the largest school competitions in the country.
During the conference days Loko made another trip with transfers, stops and overnight stays. To arrive at the match with Uralmash, they had to travel the Krasnodar-Stavropol-Moscow-Yekaterinburg route. But the club provides logistics for the team in accordance with the wishes of the coaches and medical staff – so that the players did not waste their energy on the road and came to the match as ready as possible.
The smiles on the players’ faces during the training session on the day of their arrival in Ekaterinburg are proof of that. The training session was evening local time, but Moscow time – right on the schedule of tomorrow’s match with the Uralians. The game will start on October 15 at 15:15 Moscow time.
As a reminder, the club has organized a joint viewing of the live broadcast of the game with fans in Krasnodar (details HERE). The game will be available for viewing at lokobasket.com, as well as on the air of our media partners – Krasnodar TVC.
