New professional league

Postby STMKY » Mon, 23 Apr 2018, 17:34

The first official interview about the new tournament. Kirill Yashenkov announced the countries that they plan to invite to this international tournament. Georgia, Romania and possibly Italy and Germany! :shock: With the representatives of the Georgian federation there were positive negotiations in Hong Kong. In the next 3-5 months, more specific things will be known. If the Italians agree, then probably this new tournament can replace the Continental Shield?

Who would be left out is Spain, Belgium and Portugal if this replaces the Continental Shield. Well, Spain and Portugal should have their Iberian Cup...

It would be interesting to see if the Challenge Cup or even the Champions Cup would return to their former 24-teams format with such developments...

Does the Georgian have enough money?
Very high transportation costs.

I hope that one team from Moscow will be able to participate in tournament.

They said they would negotiate with World Rugby and Rugby Europe. They also need to discuss the details with the EPCR. If the Italians agree, then you can ask for 6 place in the Challenge Cup for the new league with the expansion of the Challenge Cup to 24 teams.

These are very ambitious plans if there's talk of Germany and Italy being involved. How would the season be structured?

Have asked some initiated

Those are two different ventures:
6-team Black Sea League | Cup
Artemyev's East | Pan European = KONTINENTAL League (KRL :?: )

They are not linked
albeit emergence of the latter could spell an end for the former even before birth

An other of my semi-useless maps. The russian Premier League: in red the top clubs, in violet those competing in Division B
Distances and scarcity of top clubs (just six per division) may explain why the organizers are searching other good clubs outside borders

It's hard to immagine why the Italians would be interested and where the German clubs could find the monney.

On the contrary, it is easy to understand. Heidelberg has no competitors in Germany, they need an international full season league. Pro14? Not raalistic now. Italians, too, can be understood. If I understand correctly the transportation costs and the living is likely to be paid by the sponsor. If you do not spend money, then why not play with stronger opponents than there is in Exelenza?

Slighty stronger opponents. If you have to choose between playing your ancestral local rivals or someone you never heard that is located miles and miles away from you, then it's a rather straight answer. The differences in standards on and off the pitch must be very important for any italian to make the switch to this new competition.

People tend to forget that a championship must have a meaning, it's not just a collection of teams of a more or less equal strenghts.

Look up Kontinental Hockey League. It has teams from Finland to China. That's what they're trying to emulate.

As far as I understand, the organizers will set certain standards for teams on infrastructure. It's not just a bunch of different teams. A full-fledged league is planned, which will grow. The approximate budget of the league is 10 million euros. In any case, the negotiations with the possible teams should take place in the next 3-5 months. We will wait for the reaction.

How possible would it be for Russia to play its final REC game in Krasnoyarsk (that is, in the final third of March)?

I've been checking the temperatures around those dates and it doesn't seem too bad in the middle of the day (above 0°). Also Tbilisi is closer to Krasnoyarsk than to Madrid.

What about the timing of the season though? Winter is a big issue for rugby in Russia whilst for other nations it's not as bad. Is there any consideration for small indoor stadiums with artificial grass?

There is no such information. Probably the season will be summer. Otherwise, Russian clubs will not be able to play home games in their cities. You will not change the Russian climate. Therefore, it makes no sense to do the winter season. But for teams from other countries there will be no problem playing the summer season.
By the stadiums. In 2019, VVA and Enisei will receive new stadiums. Also Artemiev spoke about the use of new stadiums after WC2018FIFA for rugby. Perhaps the clubs of the new league will also play there.

March and November are risky months for Krasnoyarsk. Maybe + 5C or maybe -20C as with Connaught. You can not plan without risk.

There is a proverb in Russia.

March - you will dress seven pants.( Марток - оденешь семь порток)

Nothing can be guaranted, weather can be anywhere in whole country.

Yes. But in Krasnoyarsk 50 to 50 and in the south 99 to 1.

According to this video, it would be possible to install a pitch inside the new Yenisey Stadium. Seems like a good way to hold games in Krasnoyarsk, wouldn't it?
