The USSR Cup will be back in St. Petersburg for the first time in 75 years
The blue-white-sky blues only lifted the USSR Cup once, during World War II and became an iconic moment for the city and the country as a whole, with the club winning the trophy just after the lifting of the siege of Leningrad.

The final was held at Dynamo's Stadium in Moscow in front of 70,000 fans. Dynamo Moscow took the lead through Alexei Grinin and went into half time 1-0 up. However Zenit scored two in the second half through Boris Chuchelov and Sergey Salnikov to win the cup for the first and only time.

Our friends at Russian Football News have a detailed report of the win that you can read here. 

Zenit host Arsenal Tula on Friday 13 September kicking off at 8pm. Tickets are available now on the club website and fans outside of Russia will be able to watch the game live on the RPL's YouTube channel.
