ZENIT ST. PETERSBURG

It all started with Zenit St. Petersburg. Together with the 2007, 2010, 2012, 2015 and 2019 Russian champions, GAZPROM has helped the club from the "Venice of the North" become a major force. In 2008, Zenit caught Europe's eye by winning the UEFA Cup and UEFA Super Cup. Over 60% of St. Petersburg’s population are Zenit fans and many of them cheer the team on during home games at the GAZPROM ARENA.

FC SCHALKE 04

In 2007 another club became part of the GAZPROM family, the first partnership outside Russia. FC Schalke 04 are seven-time German champions and have excelled in recent years with some extraordinary performances in the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League. The working-class club from the Ruhr Valley, the industrial heart of Germany, was the ideal partner for GAZPROM, mainly because of its exceptional fans.

RED STAR BELGRADE (FC CRVENA ZVEZDA)

Another successful partnership for GAZPROM has been the involvement with Crvena Zvezda (Red Star Belgrade) from Serbia. Since 2010, GAZPROM has been involved with the club founded in 1945 as a shirt sponsor, hoardings sponsor and supporter of the youth teams. GAZPROM was delighted to become the club's main sponsor not just because they are the record Serbian champions and cup winners, but also because over four million people in the Balkan countries, from all walks of life, are passionate supporters of Crvena Zvezda.

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

GAZPROM has been an official partner of the UEFA Champions League since the start of the 2012/2013 season.
