Forex4you, one of the largest foreign exchange brokers in Russia and the CIS, has clinched a deal to become an official partner of the Kontinental Hockey League Championship 2013-14 season. The agreement, signed in Moscow on Tuesday, runs until the end of this year’s Gagarin Cup playoffs.
“This partnership, with Forex4you, is a significant one. It is the first brand from the foreign exchange sector to support the League,” said KHL Commerce and Communications Vice-President Ilya Kochevrin on signing the contract. “For both parties, sealing this deal means more than mere money: the link between the financial and sporting spheres is just as important. Forex4you currently enjoys wide popularity in Russia, is one of the leaders in its sector, and this success is the reason why we have made them our partners. It pleases me greatly that finance companies are showing interest in the development of sport in general, and hockey and the KHL in particular.”
Over the past year, Forex4you has enjoyed a significant surge in the company’s performance, with a 47.56% increase in total assets, an average monthly turnover of $22.6bn and with one transaction yielding a profit of $160,000. These results illustrate the high level of customer trust earned by Forex4you in the fiercely competitive Russian market, and last year the company was voted the "Best Forex Broker in Russia and CIS" by traders at the prestigious Forex Expo Awards 2013 exhibition.
“The Olympics in Sochi proved that Russia has returned to the club of great sporting powers and scored a resounding victory in the unofficial team event. No-one could have failed to notice the explosive growth of interest in winter sports in the country, and we intend to support the most popular of them all - hockey. Games in the KHL are played from the Adriatic Sea to the Pacific Ocean and capture a vast audience. The League is already the second strongest in the world and continues to grow bigger and stronger, so a partnership with an organization of this magnitude is a great honor for us,” said Forex4you Marketing Director Evgenia Grebennikova.
From now until the end of the season, the KHL and Forex4you will jointly stage a number of events and promotions in cities hosting games in the 2013-14 Gagarin Cup playoffs.
