EuroLeague cities: Moscow, Russia

The vast and sprawling city of Moscow is undoubtedly one of European basketball’s capitals, boasting not one but two top-quality EuroLeague organizations, with CSKA maintaining its position among the continent’s best teams ever since claiming the first of seven European titles in 1961. CSKA’s home is located just a few kilometres north of the main central hub of the iconic Red Square and the imposing walls of the Kremlin, a spacious area dripping with impressive grandeur. Khimki, a suburb of Moscow, is based further out along the busy Leningradsky Prospekt thoroughfare close to one of the main international airports, creating a unique city derby which is adding new chapters with every passing season. With its blend of old and new, proudly historic and unapologetically modern, Moscow will keep any visitor happily engaged for days on end – especially when world-class basketball is included in the package.
