ZENIT ST. PETERSBURG
Since 2005, GAZPROM has been supporting four-time Russian champions Zenit St. Petersburg and helped them become a flagship club representing the country internationally year after year. So far, the highlight year has been 2008 when the club from “The Venice of the North“ gained attention throughout Europe: On 14 May, Zenit won the UEFA Cup final against Glasgow Rangers and a few months later also celebrated the win of the UEFA Supercup against Manchester United.
Beside its commitment for the first team (whose most recent success was the winning of the Russian cup in 2016), GAZPROM also promotes St. Petersburg’s youth teams. GAZPROM is not only a sponsor but also the major shareholder of the club whose home is the Petrovsky Stadium on an island in the Malaya Neva River.
The involvement is enlivened by GAZPROM and Zenit on a regular basis. Be it the permanent Zenit tipping competition on our website or the various temporary raffles for games in both European cups – GAZPROM brings together what belongs together: football and fans!
