The 8th Gazprom Neft Cup KHL International Kids Hockey Tournament, which took place on April 20–25, 2014, was won by CSKA. The team beat Ak Bars in the Super Final scoring 1:0, so the young “army” athletes, who have won the Cup once in the past, are now the first and only team to take home the Tournament trophy for the second time in a row!

In 2014, the Gazprom Neft Cup Tournament was held using for the first time the divisional model, where the 24 participating teams from six countries were divided into two groups, the West Group and the East Group. The group stage of the Tournament took place concurrently in two cities, in Omsk (Russia) and in Minsk (the capital of the Republic of Belarus). The West Group teams met on the ice rink of the brand new sports complex in Minsk, the Chizhovka Arena, build specially for the 2014 World Hockey Championship. The Super Final traditionally was held in Omsk at the Omsk Arena, the Avangard Club’s home ground. The opening show and first games of the West and the East Groups, as well as the deciding battle in Minsk and the Super Final held in Omsk were broadcast live on KHL TV. The Gazprom Neft Cup games generated a storm of interest among hockey fans. The opening ceremony in Omsk was attended by a record number of more than 8,700 spectators, while 5,000 turned out for the parallel ceremony and opening match in Minsk. The Super Final in Omsk also drew a crowd exceeding 5,000.
