The match was played at the Dinamo stadium in besieged Leningrad. The only participant of the match who is still alive in 2002 (after 60 years) is Yevgeniy Ulitin. The LMZ team was actually compiled from three Leningrad clubs: Dinamo, Zenit, Spartak (see the letter in the brackets). The match was organized to demonstrate Nazis that the city is alive and struggling. In the second half, they had opened fire on the city and stadium. The players were offered to go to a bomb shelter, but they refused and kept playing.
