Yesterday the Russian Figure Skating Federation announced that the ISU Grand Prix event Rostelecom Cup will be held in Moscow at the Megasport Arena.
The 13,000-seat sports palace opened in 2006 and was the home of the Rostelecom Cup from 2007 to 2012. After a brief stint in a different arena in Moscow, the event has returned to Megasport since 2016.
The 2020 edition is set to take place from November 20 to 22 – the fifth event of the ISU Grand Prix series. The list of participants is yet to be announced, as the list of assignments has been delayed for another week.
