“The Tournament’s sheer scale, as much as the high standard of organisation, are what give it its unique atmosphere as a major event on the hockey calendar, every year. The Gazprom Neft Cup is important not just for its sporting element, but also in giving young hockey players from various countries the opportunity to engage with each other. I have no doubt that the impressions they take away will become lasting memories of their hockey-playing youth, for all participants.”

Alexander Dyukov
Chairman of the Gazprom Neft Management Board
“You could say the Gazprom Neft Cup is the KHL in miniature — attracting new teams, expanding into new territories, and becoming a sporting event on a continental scale, allowing hundreds of promising young people to gain invaluable experience in competing at the highest level. Taking part in this tournament is a great chance opportunity for all young hockey players to take the first step in their career, and make themselves known.”

President of the Kontinental Hockey League
“The Gazprom Neft Cup Organising Committee has decided that, going forward, we will expand the number of participants to include those countries which, while not yet represented in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL), are, nonetheless, at a high standard in terms of developing hockey. National Hockey Federations will be able to send one club from their country to the Gazprom Neft Cup, every year. In 2018, for the first time in the Tournament, a German club — Junadler Mannheim — will be taking part.”
