On 9-10 February 2013 the Grand Sports Arena of Moscow’s Olympic Complex Luzhniki hosted the fifth international football tournament “Legends Cup.” It gathered world stars of the past from Germany, Portugal, the Netherlands, Italy, Ukraine and Russia, of course. Such names as Dino Baggio, Oliver Neuville, world champion Fabio Cannavaro, Dmitri Alenichev, Andrey Tikhonov, Yegor Titov, Fabio Grosso, Neno, Pedro Mendes and Sá Pinto graced the event with their football and brought immense joy to the fans.
NordFX was one of the sponsors of this prestigious tournament for legends of the number one sport. Sponsoring a football event in Russia is an honor that allows you to be involved in the country’s public life, especially in those aspects that bring positive emotions, a great mood, inspiration and joy as you partake in something significant in this world.
The matches were marked by persistent, courageous and glorious competition. The Russian side won its fifth championship title after beating Ukraine in the final game. Portugal took the third place. Congratulations to Russian fans on another victory!
In the course of the tournament, the honorable Legends Cup team made of Soviet football stars was recognized in a special nomination from NordFX. The event participants held master classes for children from boarding schools who also received gifts from the company. On top of that, the children had much fun watching football tricks by Viktor Tsarev, a world record holder in football juggling.
As an act of charity, NordFX also presented the children from boarding schools with sports equipment since, in addition to its professional activity, the company seeks to support various socially beneficial causes that include encouraging a healthy lifestyle, championing youth and promoting sports both in Russia and abroad.
Our company is planning to sponsor such exciting sports events in the future as well. We’re interested in advancing sports and want a healthy lifestyle to be a norm in our society. Towards this end, we’re set on putting into action some more socially useful projects which, we believe, will benefit Russian people in a significant way.
