Our company has been providing financial support to Kazan's Dinamo-Energy rugby sevens team for a few years now, and even though the team is still rather young, it has already put together some impressive performances. This includes a third-place finish at the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens, an international rugby tournament that has been held annually in the United Arab Emirates for more than 40 years now. What makes this achievement especially impressive is the fact that the team wasn’t just competing against other younger teams in the tournament, but also against older and more experienced professional clubs.
This fall Alpari once again renewed its sponsorship agreement with the Dinamo-Energy rugby sevens team. We hope the financial support will help the players focus on performing well in their upcoming matches and perhaps give some of the players a chance to land a spot on the Russian national team and compete in the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.
It has already become something of a tradition at Alpari to sponsor endeavors in the world of sports. "We are glad to have the chance to provide support to young talent. Our partnership with the Dinamo-Energy club has been going strong for several years now, and during this time the boys have managed to achieve some significant results both in Russia and at the international level. I’m certain that with our support, these young rugby players have more victories and achievements in store for them," said Boris Shilov, CEO of Alpari.
