Ukrsotsbank CEO Boris Tymonkin added: “UniCredit is a strong player in the European market where most people are football fans and we share the same values with UEFA.”
Gianni Franco Papa, head of the Central and Eastern Europe Division of UniCredit, also added about the deal that “The sponsorship of the Euro 2012 marks another significant milestone in UniCredit’s commitment to sport. Euro 2012, as with our sponsorship of the UEFA Champions League, will enable us to bring the finest football events and emotions closer to the countries where the Group is present. This sponsorship will further increase our brand awareness in Central and Eastern Europe, a key region for UniCredit, and it specifically demonstrates the Group’s strong and dynamic commitment to Ukraine.”
