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.
