Russian firm denies plan to sponsor London OlympicsMarch 10th, 2008 - 10:06 pm ICT by admin
Moscow, March 10 (RIA Novosti) Russian natural gas giant Gazprom dismissed Monday a British media report which said the company may become an official sponsor of the 2012 London Olympics. “This is not true, Gazprom will not be one of the sponsors,” company spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov told RIA Novosti.
The Sunday Times published an article on March 9 saying the chairman of the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) marketing commission was expected to hold a second meeting with Gazprom executives later this month on the company becoming one of the 12 main sponsors of the event.
According to the paper, the IOC has so far signed sponsorship deals with nine multinationals, including Coca-Cola, McDonald’s and Visa, and aims to raise about $1 billion.
