Alpari is happy to announce the beginning of our cooperation with Russia’s leading sports team: FC “Spartak".
At a press conference on March 12, 2010 in the “Luzhniki” Olympic Complex, Alpari NZ CEO Boris Shilov, together with head trainer and manager of “Spartak” FC, Valery Karpin, announced the signing of a sponsorship contract for 2010. According to the terms of the agreement, Alpari will hold the status of the club’s official sponsor and our company logo will from now onward decorate the team uniform.
Alpari has long supported various social initiatives in the world of sports. More importantly, many of our employees are big fans and even active team members of our corporate football league. Thus, our company directors decided it would be an excellent idea to support one of Russia’s best football clubs.
“Football is a competition that requires both mental and physical strength, combining emotional intensity and the ability to maintain the edge of cold calculation, requiring a coherent team that moves as an organic whole and excellent coaching staff. You can say the same about the Forex industry and trading on financial markets. Choosing the right strategy and tactics is of utmost importance, along with decisiveness and the ability to not crumble under pressure. For us, the similarity between working on the Forex market and professional football was striking”, noted Alpari CEO Boris Shilov in his speech.
Last season, “Spartak” proved itself to be a leader in the Russian Championships and took a well-deserved second place. Alpari sees great potential in this football club and we are positive that, particularly with our help, “Spartak” has great chances to become the top Russian Champion in 2010.
