CSKA Moscow Sign UBRD as Premium Partner

April 12, 2011

Russian Premier League soccer giant CSKA Moscow has secured a premium partnership with the Ural Bank for Reconstruction and Development (UBRD).

The Russian credit service’s one-year sponsorship coincides with the club’s centenary season and UBRB hopes its deal with the club will give the company an expanded presence throughout Russia beyond the bank’s Ekaterinburg base.

Alexei Krokhin, pharmacy vice president of UBRD, said: “Sport is an integral part of our lives and football in general is one of the most popular sports around. The game has no age boundaries and its popularity in Russia is growing.

“Our partnership with CSKA Moscow is another big step towards gaining mass support and promoting healthy lifestyles. Until the end of CSKA Moscow’s Jubilee, we will be an official sponsor of this legendary club.”
