The VHL Board has confirmed the format of the 2024/2025 season

Possible formats for the 2024/2025 All-Russian Hockey League (VHL) season were discussed by the organisation's board on 28 June.

A round-robin system and the possibility of using different conferences and divisions were the options put on the table, alongside a round-robin format which would exclude certain matches.

It was subsequently confirmed that a full round-robin system - with every team facing each other both at home and on the road - will be used for the upcoming campaign. As a consequence, each participating club will play in 64 matches (32 at home, 32 away) in the regular season.

The schedule for the season will be published on 15 July.
