EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (AP) — With a Russian owner and Russian sponsors, the New Jersey Nets have decided to make their website available in what else — Russian.

The Nets announced on Thursday they are giving Russian-speaking fans the opportunity to connect with the team by making its website viewable in Russian. The website will be available at www.netsrussia.com.

Russian-speaking fans will have access to articles, interviews with players, coaches and management, photos and ticket information.

Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov purchased a majority share of the team in May. The franchise has sponsorship deals with Aeroflot, Russia’s leading air carrier, and vodka company Stolichnaya.
