The 9th all-Russian summer Sberbankiade was closed at the “Centralny” stadium in Sochi, where the President of the Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee Dmitry Chernyshenko was the guest of honor. “We are very pleased that Sberbank, in its status of General Partner of the 2014 Games, does not just give great significance to sport, but also supports corporate sport at the highest level. Sporting encounters at the intensity of passions and tension did not fall short of Olympic battles”, said Dmitry Chernyshenko, addressing the athletes and fans of the Sberbankiade.
“The fact that the Sberbankiade took place in Sochi, the host city of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, is no coincidence. Even before the Games start here in Sochi, 74 sporting competitions will take place. 29 of them will be international. The scale of these competitions is such that it can be compared with holding two Olympics and Paralympics. The first qualifying competitions - the Russian Cup and the European Cup in mountain-skiing - will take place as soon as in January - February 2011”, he said.
In the 9th all-Russian summer Sberbankiade, a selection of 18 territorial banks of Sberbank of Russia participated, the picked team of Central staff and the team of bank subsidiaries from Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Belorussia. The competitions took place in the following forms of sport: football, basketball, volleyball, track-and-field athletics, swimming, and also lapta.
The all-Russian Sberbankiades are conducted in Russia, both in winter and in summer. The selection takes place at the competitions of the territorial banks of Sberbank.
