MOSCOW, August 31. /TASS/. The contract between Gazprom and the European Union of Football Associations (UEFA) on the Russian energy giant’s sponsorship of the Champions League will be signed within ten days, Gazprom Germania Director of Corporate Communications Burkhard Woelki told TASS on Monday.
"We will prolong it [the contract] for the next three years," Woelki said. "We are waiting for the signing of the contract by [Gazprom’s CEO] Mr Miller."
Gazprom has been the official sponsor of the most prestigious European tournament of football clubs, the Champions League, since 2012 and the most recent sponsorship deal of the Russian energy giant with UEFA expired following the end of the current season.
Besides the Champions League, Gazprom is also the official sponsor of Russia’s Zenit St. Petersburg FC, Germany’s Schalke 04 FC and Serbia’s Crvena Zvezda (Red Star Belgrade) FC.
