Russian Government Cup

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Russian Government Cup is a tournament for national teams in bandy, arranged in Russia every other year since 1972. When the World Championships were held every other year, this tournament was held in around the same time of the year (February/March) in the years when there was no World Championships. Since 2003, it has been arranged in December instead.

Besides the national teams, there have sometimes been irregular teams representing federation subjects of Russia or a "Russia no. 2" team – these are written with italics below and marked with two flags if they are federation subjects – or Russian club teams, to fill out the tournament.

It was called the Rossiya Tournament until 1990, because it was arranged by the newspaper Sovetskaya Rossiya. Since then, it has instead been arranged by the Russian government, hence the present name.
