The Russian Premier League returns on March 17.

Russia’s top-tier football competition began on August 8 last year and will be completed on May 16, 2021. The tournament is in its 29th year of operation since the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the 17th edition under the current Russian Premier League name.

A total of 240 matches are played in one campaign, with the 16 contesting teams playing 30 matches each.

Zenit St Petersburg is the defending champion of the Russian Premier League and currently leads the points table with a six-point cushion over second-placed Dynamo Moscow. Since the rebranding of the competition in 2002, Zenit and CSKA Moscow have won six titles each.

The other teams to have lifted the trophy are Lokomotiv Moscow (2002, 2004, 2017–18), Rubin Kazan (2008, 2009), and Spartak Moscow (2016-17). But in terms of most league titles in Russian football history, Spartak Moscow stands tall with 10 trophies.

Sergei Semak’s Zenit St Petersburg have won the last two editions (2018–19, 2019–20) and are seemingly on course to become the first Russian team to win the Russian Premier League three times in a row.
