“Let’s see how the situation will develop with the spread of the threat of coronavirus and economic situation in the country, but if everything comes back to normal, we will file the application to join the United League. I think we are ready to upgrade. This is indicated by our consistent results in the super League-1 victory in the Cup of Russia – 2020, as well as the vertical alignment of youth projects and team building in basketball 3×3. Overall this season we had 10 teams in competitions under the auspices of the League and United League. It can boast of the unit. “Samara” can withstand the tournament rules and regulations regarding the capacity of the arena, playing its first five home games on the current home court. Then in operation should enter a new arena that meets all requirements” — quoted Pogosyan “news”.
