Well, you could follow one of the more exciting leagues in Europe – the Russian Premier League – which for the last time will be taking place in the summer months, as they are due to switch to the same timing as the other major leagues next season. The league now features another top flight derby match to go with the several Moscow derbies, as there are two teams from Krasnodar – FC Kuban Krasnodar, and FC Krasnodar – both of whom play at the Kuban Stadium (pictured).
