The fans themselves consider October 7, 2012 to be the date of the founding of the Active Support Sector in Basket Hall – the day when the sector got its own VK page. By that time the club had already been playing at the new arena for a year, but it was only before the 2012/13 season that a ticket program appeared – and, accordingly, the opportunity to book a permanent place for fans in the stands.
– We are well aware that Loko has a huge history and that the team had different groups of organized fans in Mineralnye Vody, Rostov-on-Don, and Krasnodar, while the club played in Olimp, – says the head of the fan sector of Lokomotiv-Kuban Boris Miroshnichenko. – We have great respect for these people and by no means claim that October 7 is the birthday of the entire fan movement of the club as a whole. But for 11 years we have already accumulated a history, which we are proud of. And this day is a holiday for us.
At the big break of the match with IBA the club presented the fan-sector with a cake, which was made by our partner – confectionery “Vanilla”. Another great gift to the fans came from the team, which finally got its first win of the new VTB United League season.
Happy holidays, Loko family! For 11 years, generations of active fans have already changed, but we appreciate everyone’s contribution and will do our best to make sure you witness truly great events!
