CSKA Moscow, UNICS Kazan and Zenit Saint Petersburg will play their next EuroLeague games behind closed doors.

The reason is that Russia is still dealing with Covid-19 pandemic and reported 25,000 cases on Monday. This is a 14% rise over the last few weeks.

Therefore, for the foreseeable future, the EuroLeague and VTB League games of the three clubs will take place without fans in attendance.

CSKA Moscow has three straight home games in mid-October. They will host Zenit (October 12), Crvena Zvezda (October 15) and Olympiacos (October 22).

Zenit will host Bayern Munich (October 14), Real Madrid (October 27) and Baskonia (October 29). For their part, UNICS has four home games in October. They will battle Monaco (October 8), Bayern (October 12), Baskonia (October 27) and Real (October 29).
