Hello, firstly let me say a big thank you to Valery Kondakoff for getting me as far as this.
I will be visiting Moscow and St Petersburg in April and I’d really like to watch some local rugby, I’m not worried about the standard I just thought it would be fun to watch and see how rugby is played in other places.
I will be in Moscow on 23 April and St Petersburg on the 30 April so if anybody can invite me or recommend a place to watch a game (and enjoy a drink afterwards) then it would be greatly appreciated.
April is definitely not a good period to watch live rugby in Northern Russia. It highly depends on weather, if the grounds are playable, which is usually not the case, some friendlies may be organised.
End of April there will be the Students Russia Championship in Sevens in Kazan, played on an artificial ground.
