Official FIFA Partner
Since early 2015, GAZPROM is an official partner of the FIFA. The partnership, of course, includes: The 2018 FIFA World Cup which was held in Russia for the first time. Already a year earlier, in summer 2017, the country saw the FIFA Confederations Cup where eight teams played in the stadiums of Saint Petersburg, Moscow, Kazan and Sochi and the then reigning World Cup champions Germany secured the trophy.
For Alexej Miller, CEO of GAZPROM PAO, the partnership is another logical step in the company’s sports sponsoring: “GAZPROM is known for its special attitude towards football. We have a long record of success in interacting with football organisations, we are an official partner of the UEFA Champions League and we promote several football clubs in Russia and Europe. For us, the cooperation with FIFA means a new level of support in the field of football. It is also an important step for GAZPROM to position itself as a global energy corporation.“
Between 14 June and 15 July 2018, the world of football saw a great and peaceful World Cup tournament. 169 goals were scored in 64 games, 14 of which helped France to come out as world champions in the end.
