In an interview with VP's coach Jakub "kuben" Gurcynzki - hosted by Starladder, Jakub remarked on Ukraine's capital city:
"It’s always a pleasure to visit Kiev. It was a second home for us in the past, while I was playing. Thanks to the invitation we received, we can come once again to this beautiful city."
If this is any indication of the past we should expect good things from VP, being that the crowd is widely considered to be their 6th teammate.
