Authentic Russian Premier League Replica Shirts!
Russian PL History
Prior to 2012 the Russian football league was traditionally a summer tournament, due to the inclement weather conditions during winter months in Russia. However, from 2012 to coordinate with other European football leagues, and avoid disruption due to tournaments such as the UEFA European Championship and the FIFA World Cup the Premier League moved to an Autumn - Spring timetable. The football league in Russia does take a three month winter break to accommodate the weather, and as such scheduling for some teams before and after can on occasion be hectic.
Russian Teams in the League
Russian clubs are allocated spots in both Champions League and Europa League competition. The first two teams qualify for UCL, and the 3rd, 4th and 5th placed teams enter into the Europa League tournament. No club from Russia has ever won the UCL title, but both CSKA Moscow and Zenit St. Petersburg have won the Europa League title in 2005 and 2008 respectively.
