Zenit St Petersburg

The club formerly known as Triumph Lyubertsy has officially changed to become Zenit St Petersburg after moving to the second largest city in the Russian Federation before the start of the 2014-15 season. Zenit will be Triumph's legal successor, keeping the right to play in the 2014-15 Eurocup season. It has also been announced that Zenit will play in the 7,100-seat Sibur Arena, host to Spartak St Petersburg's Eurocup home games last season and one of the most modern arenas in the country being inaugurated in 2011. It will be the third St Petersburg-based team to play the Eurocup after Dynamo and Spartak.
